Waterfall Photography Explained

Waterfall Photography Explained

There are 3 waterfalls near where I live (that I know of anyway). Waterfalls offer a variety of different opportunities for photographers when it comes to technique and genres of photography. Below are the tips that I have learned and picked up from the web while taking images of these great locations.

1 Bridge 5 Photographs

This bridge has always caught my eye whenever I drive over the bridge in Maidenhead, a local town. The white steel work against the dark river really makes the bridge stand out and makes for a lovely image (I think) :)
Snail Safari – After The Rain

Snail Safari – After The Rain

Another testament to my theory that there's ALWAYS something of interest to take a photo of. After our pretty epic storms yesterday and the accompanying rain, there were quite a few snails sliming about in the garden. This offers a great opportunity to practice focus and aperture, while capturing a unique portrait of an often overlooked model :)
Quick Trick To Achieve Great Depth Of Field and Focus

Quick Trick To Achieve Great Depth Of Field and Focus

I've been taking quite a few shots recently where I've included strong focus on a very small part of the frame, usually a plant shoot or moss etc. This type of shot would normally mean an awkward angle to shoot from, therefore causing problems for you as the photographer. IT would also require a tripod as the focus would need to be manual, meaning tricky set up to the the extremely low angle. Luckily, there's an easier way.
A Farmers Sunset

A Farmers Sunset

It's been a little while since I took an HDR sunset shot, tonight I decided that would be my goal. Luckily there's a farm nearby that provides a very nice vista as well as facing west for a sunset opportunity. I took 3 bracketed shots, all RAW, processed in Photoshop CC and Pixlr. 10426

Retro Summer Photos

Great weather at the weekend meant a few summer countryside photos. Shooting in extremely bright light can be difficult and wash out colour so I applied a few post processing techniques to work with the washed out look, rather than trying to fight it.

Finding the time for photography can be difficult. We all have busy lives, commitments and things we need to be getting on with, all of which seem to get in the way of our passions. I took this photo before work yesterday, at 6am, the only window I've had this week for a mini shoot :/
