I like the triangle of grass at the bottom right of BEFORE Black and white highlights the stunning detail of the trees AFTER the frame, but again, for a comfortable sense of balance we need more of it to anchor us to the ground. I would have liked David to stand back a bit to allow the composition to continue to the left, and to allow a more significant foreground – and BEFORE then to have cropped the frame to a widescreen 16:9 format. I’ve produced a rough version to demonstrate the changes, with 1-2EV exposure compensation, and a switch to black & white that allows us to concentrate on the light and the form.

However, there were occasions with such low light levels that the continuous focus would take far too long to lock on. So, I began to use one-shot, all AF points, alongside back button focus. This meant I needed to refocus for every shot, but I could more or less guarantee that every one would be sharp. I would usually shoot two headshots and three body shots, which was enough to get a decent image. A few other photographers I worked with joked that my technique was like a hitman’s – but that’s what I had to do.
