Sunny days typically present an issue for a photography tour. Not so with colorful fall foliage, you simply need to find a river or stream in the shade with the foliage in bright sun on the opposite side. Trust me, once you do, you will become an addict. We had a fair amount of sun for our tour this past week, so we had quite a few opportunities to shoot reflections. I didn’t hear much complaining.
I’m sure I’ll be asked about settings. You’ll need a long lens, typically the longest you have. Then, its a game of finding the right shutter speed. This will depend on the speed of the water and DOF you desire. For this image I was at f/16 and 1/10 of a second. I can’t stress enough, the speed of the water will greatly affect the look so bracket your shutter speed.
Thanks Cindy. Wicked is good, wicked good. 🙂
Love this! Is this a Topaz image?
I did use Topaz Clarity every so slightly… just a touch. All other processing in ACR.
Really lovely one, John!
Good advice, John. It took me a long time to understand the importance of shutter speed and water speed and their correlation. Lovely work.
