High-Contrast Black-And-White Assignment Winner Dean Cobin
“Ghosts On The Water” By Dean Cobin
Congratulations to Dean Cobin, who won the High-Contrast Black-and-White Assignment with his image, “Ghosts On The Water.”
“Upon arriving at this location and finding a blanket of thick fog, I was able to isolate a group of trees using a 70-200mm lens,” explains Cobin. “The low light and stopping down to f/32 allowed for a 30-second exposure. Still water formed a perfect mirror for the reflection. The beautiful shapes created a strong graphical interest. I immediately knew the high contrast between the fog and trees processed as a black-and-white image would give any viewer the ability to focus directly on the shapes without the distraction of color.”
Equipment: Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Really Right Stuff L bracket, Canon 70-200mm “L” f/4 with a B/W Polarizer, Induro CT208 Carbon Fiber Tripod, Really Right Stuff BH-55 ballhead with quick release
