Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Post-processing on the foamy water photo, part of Travel Photography: Fjords of New Zealand.
- Now, I noticed some interesting foam in the foreground…once high tide came in and I thought,…"How cool would it be to do a long exposure…"and have that foam rolling through…"and give me the streaky lines?"…Well, it didn't quite happen that way.…Once I got set up and I started the exposure the foam…started to kind of move out to sea.…And I also had an exposure issue where…the foreground was a little bit dark…and the background was so bright.…As the clouds were moving I kept getting…these bright patches.…So, if you're looking at this image…on the screen here, you'll see…that I don't have any foam in the foreground.…
But what I do have is mood, and a lot of it.…I actually really like this image.…At first I look at it and I say,…gosh, I really hit the right side of that histogram.…That's really blown out.…Let's hit the J key and see…that red area tells me there's no detail there.…If I make an attempt to pull that back,…if I pull it back with the highlights and whites,…the red goes away, but if I zoom in, that is pure white.…
