My first photography project in my Introduction to Studio course was The Perfect Tree. I had to take a photograph of the same tree at sunrise, noon, sunset and moonlight/stars.
First I had to search all over Muskoka to find The Perfect Tree (there are millions!), and then I had to go back several times to try and get my shots.
For the sunrise shot, my husband got the headlamp and bear spray out for me so I could hike out to my perfect tree in the early morning hours and wait for the sun to rise. My perfect tree is located at Huckleberry Rock.
I had to go back a couple of times for my noon shot. The first time I drove and hiked out there it was a beautiful blue sky day. By the time I got to my tree it had completely clouded over. The second time I went I waited patiently for a massive white billowy cloud to move so the sun could shine high and bright.
My sunset shot wasn’t what I expected it to be. I really wanted a shot of the golden sun with a dark blue background. But what I got were these amazing ominous clouds!
I am super proud of my moonlight shot. I have tried many times to photograph the stars and they aligned for me the night I took this shot!
All I have to do is submit my camera RAW files and I my final mark is 100%!
