This is my image of the week for this week. I posted this picture and the story of this image on my photography blog yesterday – just click here if you want to read a bit more about this image.

In this post I am going to share my camera settings with you.

Technical stuff I did to produce this image.


Firstly, the hotographs was taken on my Canon 6D with Canon 17-40mm lens. The camera and lens were mounted on my Manfrotto 190 Go Tripod with X Pro geared head.

I used my Neewer Loupe Viewer (I think that is what it is called) to compose the image using the live view mode on my Canon 6D. 

Camera settings

  • ISO 100
  • Aperture F16
  • Shutter speeds 1/25th second and 1/400th second
  • AV Mode used
  • Back button focus

I took the exposure by focussing a third into the scene and then used the in-built camera self timer. This stuff does not have to be complicated. 

Two images merged together using the HDR Merge tool in Lightroom.
