Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting a waterfall from a boat without a tripod, part of Travel Photography: Fjords of New Zealand.
- We're coming up on Stirling Falls.…This waterfall sits in this wonderful bowl,…and the low clouds tend to hang…and just kind of live in there.…So it's a very interesting a shape.…I'm gonna shoot this from this side of the fjord,…and then the captain's gonna bring us…around eventually right up to the falls.…When I'm shooting here, I'm gonna shoot…both horizontal and vertical.…Each time I switch I have to polarize.…[camera click]…My shutter speed was 1/50th of a second.…
That's not gonna cut it.…So what we're gonna do is take our ISO up.…That was at 400.…We're gonna go to 800 and really try…and increase that shutter speed.…[camera click]…[camera click]…Hovering around 1/100th of a second at 55mill…I'm feeling a little bit better about that.…Those look pretty sharp.…I want to switch that vertical.…Repolarize.…
[camera click]…[camera click]…The camera's metering really dark…so I'm gonna take my exposure compensation dial…and I'm going to bring it up about 2/3 of a stop.…[camera click]…[camera click]…All right, I feel like I've done a good job.…
