Join me in this 'start to finish' and see how I created my portfolio image 'Arcadia'. 
In this course, we commence out in the field at the Mount Cook/Aoraki National Park in New Zealand. From here, I share my approach for composing and capturing grand scenes, what I look for and am aiming to achieve, balancing out the scene and how to create visual flow and depth. Plus, my approach for handheld shooting and focus stacking for an infinite depth of field.
Afterward, we head back to the studio, where I showcase a broad range of techniques and considerations for processing the raw file, from start to finish.
