“I got the sexton, who was digging Linton’s grave, to remove the earth off her coffin lid, and I opened it. I thought, once, I would have stayed there, when I saw her face again—it is hers yet—he had hard work to stir me; but he said it would change, if the air blew on it…” — Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
Photography Challenge: Use An Incorrect White Balance Setting
I shot this cemetery scene using Tungsten instead of Daylight white balance even though I was shooting in broad daylight because I wanted the blue nature of a Tungsten white balance to cool this image down and lend it an eerie sensibility.
I took this photograph at the Mission Dolores cemetery in San Francisco, and I was so excited to see that they had a fruiting apple tree there. This photo is an homage to one of my favorite Grimm’s Fairy Tales, The Juniper Tree.
