Photograph Notes:

Northern Michigan woodland sunrise | nature photography | landscape photography
Capturing scenes like this puts some technical challenges on the photographer. Shooting strait into the sun typically causes the exposure meter to want to underexpose everything else in the scene to compensate. Tools available today enable photographers to blend a series of exposures to counteract that behavior. It is very similar to graduated neutral density filters used in the field, but with much more control. I love the color and vibrancy of backlit leaves, particularly with fall colors. This technique just helped me capture this scene as I saw it without the limitations of my camera holding me back.
