Hey everyone,

I need a little help. I need to take a few landscape photos for a new client (a cemetery). I typically try to shoot outdoor images during bright, puffy cloud days to minimize shadows. Unfortunately, I frequently find myself waiting for clouds to cover the sun. I know you can get some pretty dramatic images during the early morning or late afternoon. I'm ust curious as to what you guys think.

Thanks!

Your best bet is to get a tripod and shoot in the morning before the sun clears the horizon, or in the evening as the sun goes below the horizon. You get a soft light with nice tones and soft shadows. Most great landscape work is done well before breakfast.

Not sure I want to be in a cemetery at night. LOL

Or maybe if there is anything illuminated in the cemetery, you might try shooting during the "blue hour." Here's one I did recently (see if you can find the poltergeist ;) ):

That's beautiful work. May I ask how you shot it? Did you do any image correction in PS or LR?

Hehe. Just a guy moving a bit during a long exposure. ;)

Thanks, and sorry for the late reply. I somehow missed your question. It's a very straightforward capture: a single exposure with no special post-processing. I used a tripod and probably had a graduated ND filter over the lens (I don't recall now, but that's likely).

You'd probably have to take it when there's a full moon.
