Today’s featured photo of the day! November’s feature is: California

Here is today’s featured photo. For the month of November I am featuring photos of California. Here is a great shot of the interior and mountains within Griffith Park. How stunning!! Date – November 1991.

California_Griffith Park__Fujicolor 400

Photo taken with a Nikon FE camera through a Nikon 26 mm lens, filter=polarizer, Aperture=16 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/125th second, loaded with Fujicolor 400 Color 135 Negative Film processed with C-41 Processing Chemicals, and a Type C Print using the RA-4 enlargement paper process, onto a 4X6″ semi-gloss print.

TIP:  Centered horizons never look good. But sometimes going 1/3rd or 2/3rd either way either under or overexposes and/or changes the saturation in the photo. A nice resolution is to opt for 2/5th’s or 3/5th’s centered, to get the right effect as I did above with the 3/5th’s I selected so that the hazy sky was overexposed, yet the subject of Griffith Park in the foreground came shining through, and the polarizer assisted in cutting the haze as well.

See you tomorrow with another fine photograph of my favorite state to vacation–California!!
