As mentioned on my first post of this series, we had some luck on our way back through this forest. First, we visited the Jojakko-ji Temple nearby so that we can avoid the tourist crowds at the Arashiyama forest. Here are some photos of the beautifully landscaped gardens of this temple.
It was getting dark and most of the tourists had left the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, allowing for an intruder free shot! However, it was getting dark and my poor habit of having auto ISO added a lot of grains to these shots. I am still lucky because my camera's (Canon 6D) low light performance is very good.
If I were to do this shoot again, I would go with a remote shutter release so that I can put my camera into Bulb mode when I am at a lower ISO setting. However, I am still not sure how to calculate the shutter speed in Bulb mode (how many seconds to keep the shutter open in order to get the correct exposure). Maybe someone from PhotoBlog can advise?
Trying a different edit
For the photo below, I edited the same photo with the VSCO Film Lightroom Presets. Which one do you like more?
