Name: Tree of Life
Description: Night photo at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
3.B.8 – Night Time Photo
1. What editing was done to the photo? I started out by increasing the blacks a small bit to block out the light in the sky. I also increased the exposure just a small amount. The clarity was increased a lot more to make it pop. I also sharpened the photo and reduced the noise reduction. I looking at the side by side, I feel like the tree pops out from the darkness much better.
2. How did the photo meet the requirements? This photo was taken at night and I will say this was a harder one to capture. The colors and animations on the tree moved around a lot and I was handholding the camera which didn’t help.
3. What was the value of this assignment to you? I really love night shots, but most of mine are usually of still items. So now, I want to get better at subjects that move at night. This would also benefit me as my children do their sports at night.
