To accomplish this photo I set up my camera on a tripod and used a remote shutter release. I set the Nikon 28-300VR lens to 28mm knowing I would crop it later to suit the subjects. I used manual mode to set my camera to a 3 second shutter speed and an aperture of f/16 to ensure I got everything in focus from front to back with enough exposure on the lighted mountain knowing my flash set to -1 power would illuminate the model (my daughter) correctly at the end of the 3 seconds. This is called rear-sync flash technique. I did not want an exposure too long for the model to hold her beautiful smile. 🙂
This is my submission for Assignment 9: Portrature.
