My son and I have had many adventure-filled days 4-wheeling around the Whites in search of “treasure” and ancient Bristlecones. Most attractive groves face east overlooking the Nevada desert and are not positioned to include the beautiful sunsets to the west. In late June, 1996, 6-year-old Dylan, my pregnant wife, and I drove to this attractive Schulman Grove tree which I’d prescouted the previous winter. We waited until 9 PM for sunset color in the sky but the tree was then deep in the shade. A long shutter speed allowed for depth of field and multiple flashes, and Dylan directed a strong flashlight into the deep shadows along the trunk. Pre-exposure (an old Ansel Adams trick) allowed me to raise the deepest values about l.5 stops without affecting the highlight values.
