On the second day, we lunched at the Ahwahnee hotel and shot more photos while waiting for our tables. Rooms here cost upward of $450 per night but don’t expect the Ritz Carlton because this is a national historic landmark, the rooms can be small and the accommodations spartan. But as I was walking on the hotel grounds, there was a herd of deer ran past me and it was a thrilling experience.
Billl (William Hartshorn) showed me how to take this shot using the trees as a frame. Even with him showing me how to take the shot, I still had to delete several shots because my framing isn’t precise. He is among of the pros and they believe in getting the frame correctly in-camera to avoid cropping in post-production as much as possible.
