On the level

May 21, 2010

Volunteers were allowed back into Deukmejian Wilderness Park on Saturday to help clear out nonnative weeds and to do some light trail maintenance. I wanted to show how much vegetation has grown since last year’s devastating fires and subsequent mudflows that left the area barren, looking like a moonscape. In order to show the grass, I decided on a low angle, which would give me a different and interesting view of a person working on a trail while at the same time show the vegetation’s progress. Using a wide-angle lens, I maximized my depth of field while at the same time showing as much area as possible. I then just waited for the volunteer to stretch his rake so I could get a nice long line leading your eye from him to the ground.
