Photographing The World Behind The Scenes episode 7 is now live. In this episode, we visit the famous lone tree at Lake Wanaka, we get rained out at Milford Sound, and we end up in Queenstown for our final lesson.
In classic Elia fashion he woke us up 3 hours before sunrise 2 days in a row to visit the famous tree that grows by the edge of Lake Wanaka. This lesson ended up being the first lesson in the entire landscape tutorial in which Elia used a graduated neutral density filter.
Elia decided to keep the post processing pretty simple for this image and he created a very classic looking shot.
Milford Sound ended up being an incredible place to visit but the constant rain ruined any chance of us getting a useful lesson. This area was so remote that we couldn't get cell service or internet for days and we ended up staying inside and editing our footage for 3 days.
We ended our trip in Queenstown where we filmed our final lesson on focus stacking. In case you haven't heard, Queenstown has become known as the "adrenalin capital of the world." I've had a lifetime fear of bungee jumping and because of that fear, I knew I had to do it. At the end of this episode I sign up to jump off of the highest bungee jump in New Zealand. Stay tuned for next weeks episode when I conquer the biggest fear of my life.
