Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting water channels in the foreground, part of Landscape Photography: Washington's Olympic National Park.
- I only made it about 20 feet…and I already see another comp that I love.…This is fantastic.…What we have are streams that come in through the forest…and feed into the Pacific Ocean.…They leave little channels that resemble…aerial photography of deltas or even trees.…They're fascinating.…I love to photograph them.…Here, we can use them as a foreground…with the rocks, the pool, sea stack…and the big sky with the streaks.…I'm going to go vertical or portrait this time…so that I can really extend and have the foreground…lead in and then the wispy clouds.…
The foreground of the channels and the wispy clouds…will actually mirror each other.…This is another example…where I'm going to polarize on and off…to see what I like better in post.…My aperture, I believe, is going to be f/11,…but just to be safe, I'll shoot f/16 as well.…I've got the composition here, my exposure.…We have f/11, ISO 100, 1/13 sec.…I've already focused…and I'm going to take my first image.…I'm going to look at the histogram,…and it's beautiful.…
I'm not hitting the right wall.…
