Travel to New Zealand with landscape photographer Justin Reznick to learn the art of photographing dramatic coastal fjords.
(acoustic guitar) - Hi, I'm Justin Reznick, and we are on the incredible south island of New Zealand. Before us is Milford Sound. No trip is complete to the south island without this incredible fjord. We have Mitre Peak, over 1600 meters rising from the sea floor. We have Bowen Falls over here. And more water falls we're going to get the chance to explore.
To start the day, we're here at low tide, which exposes all these amazing foregrounds to work into our scene. After we focus on low tide, we move over to the boats, where we're gonna hop on, and explore the waterfalls up close. Go out to the Tazmin Sea, and re-enter the fjord, much like the early explorers did. And that's gonna be our incredible Milford experience.
