Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a more powerful foreground-to-background relationship, part of Landscape Photography: Washington's Olympic National Park.
- (water rushes noisily)…- Now, while I was hand-holding to compose,…I found a very powerful rapid…that I think is gonna make…a excellent foreground.…This is gonna lead us…into our second type of wide-angle shot.…The first one we just did…was a serene overview.…This is an in-your-face,…foreground-to-background relationship image.…It's a more powerful image in a way.…But that's not to take away from the previous image.…
I love to approach both images in every scene…and decide later…which one works for me.…This particular rapid here…is firing off one rock,…bouncing off another,…back into the creek.…It's got what ...…It's called Finger Falls.…It's got little ribbons within itself.…It's gonna be a really great foreground.…Now, as I position my tripod in here,…I'm gonna be very close to the foreground,…which means my aperture…is gonna go from F11 to F16,…to give me that extra depth of field…so that everything's tack sharp,…front to back.…
Let's go ahead and get into position.…Now, I wanna be thorough…and also check vertical or portrait mode…
