The Giant Sun Sinks into the Tasman Sea
Despite what I said in the podcast, sometimes you do want to go beyond +2 to -2 ! I can't go through every caveat in those short soundbytes... but this exemplifies such a case. In this photo of the sunset over the Tasman Sea, off the coast of New Zealand, I did take 7 exposures form +3 to -3. Whenever you aim the camera right into the sun, you need to expose even more range than normal.
I am going back to New Zealand for about a month in October. It will be a blast! This time, I'll be spending most of my time on the South Island, exploring around... I hope to bring back more wonderful finds from the wild for you!
