A photographer’s day starts before the sun so an hour before dawn I found myself at a vantage point to shoot the stars above Chief Mountain, a revered spot of the Blackfeet Indians. A stunning sunrise was sure in the making because of the wispy cirrus clouds that were sure to capture pinks and oranges of the approaching dawn.
I find these opportunities quite problematic; you are shooting a landscape at your widest aperture so there is very little depth of field. What do you focus on? Once you figure that out you can’t see what you have decided on because it is darker than the resulting photo.
