    Aidan, I think I'm trying to reply too late from the time you posted, so I can't directly reply to your comment.  But to comment on your questions, the iPhone is great for its convenience, but if you ever looked at an iPhone image compared side by side with a good DSLR photo, there is typically a significant different.  Under ideal conditions for the iPhone, you might see less different, but a DSLR has some distinct advantages in the case of this shot. 

    One big different is the need to capture the wide dynamic range of the light and color.  Light levels are bright from the areas receiving the direct sun, and dark in the shadow areas.  A DSLR typically can better represent that range better.  But, when you consider the shot was taken as a RAW image, and then I compressed the tonal range from the 12 or 14 bit image before it was converted into the common 8 bit JPG, it explains where the color and contrast detail comes from.

    I hand held this shot… Wasn't a lot of set up time.  As far as considerations from a compositional approach, I wanted to include the meandering dirt road, the color of the rows of trees, and used a medium zoom to compress the image from to back a little, rather than using a wide angle lens that would have made the road appear to shrink off in the distance, but also give the closer trees much more emphasis.  I liked letting the color carry weight through the depth of the image with this composition.

  10. Hi there,

    Just a quick question regarding the photograph at 07:38. When taking this photo what exactly was it that you took into consideration? Was the photo taken using hands as opposed to using a tripod. One of the main things I find myself having problems with is when I come across an opportunity like this I always think 'what is the point in using my DSLR when I could just use my iPhone as the image will look more or less the same?'.

    Cheers,

    Aidan.

  11. This is a great podcast. looking forward to the rest of the series. This clearly hasn't gotten the hits it deserves.

  12. Great workshop! The information regarding wildlife photography is indeed very educational.
