I've been experimenting with the fisheye lens and locations and come to a decision. The most interesting image is in the woods. Initially I was thinking about having more of an open canopy to see the sky and stars with maybe a few trees in the frame. While hiking for locations at remote lakes I started photographing in the forest and noticed that this lens fits perfectly for photographing trees. Trees have always been an almost impossible thing to photograph because you are never able to capture the scale of being under them in a typical photograph. However this fisheye lens is able to show the entire tree from the base to the top and capture the feeling of being under these towering pillars of life.
I'm still looking for a location that will offer the perfect blend of forest canopy with open windows to the sky which will be moving in and out of the trees. If anyone from Oregon has some ideas, I'm open to suggestions of places around the Oregon rainforest that might work well. Having exhausted the Mt. Hood region I'm hoping for find some other ideas for locations, hopefully in a area less mountainous that cover the horizon. A flat wooded landscape would be ideal.
NOTE: Being that the rainy season is beginning it might be hard to find a window of clear sky to shoot this in the near future, but I'll try to keep you all updated on my progress.
