French Alps Image
Misty sunrise over Les Deux Alpes in the French Alpes
When I was wading through my huge batch of holiday images of the French Alps, I stubled upon these. These two pictures I made during a very early walk in the French Alps. At that time I didn’t take the whole thing to serious because I couldn’t get everything in the image ….. I thought. So I did not bother te get my tripod and set of Lee ND gradient filters. Later during post processing it turned out that I could retrieve lots of the colors back. So afterwards I so a little sorry that I did not use my tripod and filters because then the image would have been a little nicer ……
Fortunately, they are made with ISO 100 so I could keep the noise in the foreground (which arouse through twisting all that knobs in Photoshop) just under control. If I had used my Lee soft grad ND gradient filter than that noise would have been less of a problem. Both Images Have been approved bij Shutterstock, Fotolia and Istock. Where the reviewing is pretty strickt, so the noise didn’t turn out to be a major problem in the end.
Nevertheless I wanted to share this with you. If you ever head out to the French Alpes. Take your Neutral Density Filters with you…..AND USE THEM…
Photographing in the French Alps
By the way the French Alps are a beautiful place for photographing. Especially in the mornig when the sky is humid and light is mellow. This image was made at the head of the trail to Lac Lauvitel . Which can be seen below. This is a magnificent walk to a magnificent place and highly recommended. Around this area the French Alps are very beautiful.
