Light show – Sandra Bartocha (Germany)

Specially Commended. As the snow started to melt, a thick fog began to wrap itself around the forest near Sandra’s home in Potsdam, Germany. Envisaging the photographic potential, she grabbed her camera and went straight to the forest. The scene was even more beautiful than she’d expected. ‘The evening sun created a glow around the tall, wet trunks of the Scots pines,’ she remembers. ‘It was breathtaking.’ She experimented with several different focal planes and lenses to try to capture the effect. Eventually, she settled on a mirrorless camera with a tilt lens, allowing her to change the layers of sharpness from parallel to horizontal, so the unsharp areas were not in front but behind and below the main focus. She played around with the focus ‘to keep the warm, broken light at the top of the frame and the trunks below relatively sharp’.
