Canon DSLR does Colossal Dune Sledding
I posted a longer version of this in samples/galleries, but figured I'd share with my Canon brethren, since that's all I used. Perhaps I may be of some service to those who are learning here.
Gear Involved: Canon 40D and 17-40L. Occasionally the 28mm 1.8 or 85mm 1.8. No tripod. No special HDR software. Single RAW files processed in Lightroom and PS5. Any questions or criticism is welcome. Thanks!
PS: If you missed parts 1-3 of the Death Valley series, they are over at my (non-commercial) personal travel blog:
Dawn at Dante's view —
Devil's Golf Course and Salt Flats —
Home by Way of Whitney —
PSS: We tried rather unsuccessfully to slide down the dunes on a piece of cardboard. To make things worse, I had bad food poisoning at this point and trudging up and down the dunes was torture. At least it was beautiful.
