Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting reflective pools with a foreground-and-background relationship in mind, part of Landscape Photography: Washington's Olympic National Park.
- Another beautiful hike through a forest…in Olympic National Park brings us to the iconic,…the famous, the incredible Second Beach.…This location is one of the world's most famous…for landscape photography.…What makes it so special are the incredible sea stacks…and the foreground rocks with pools.…It's just a remarkable scene…and it's just amazing to be here all alone.…This is just fantastic.…What I've done is I have a wide angle lens…and I got this on in the car before I even came down…to the beach because I don't want to change lenses…when you have salt spray and sand.…
You want to try and avoid that.…So the lens was already on…and what I really wanted to go for…was a foreground/background relationship.…These incredible pools with rocks make great foregrounds.…Reflections.…Sometimes you have waves coming around forming streaks.…All sorts of interesting foregrounds…and then in the background,…we place these incredible sea stacks.…Now as I look at the conditions before me,…I've got wispy clouds of blue sky and a sun…
