Okay, I promise this will be the last snow or ice night photo I’ll show you until next winter. Spring has sprung and it’s time for warmer thoughts from now on. Personally, I’m already getting excited about shooting fireflies in a month or so.
Mother Nature has swooped down on my neck of the woods and declared that spring is just going to have to wait. So I’m outta here in hopes of one last opportunity of shooting waterfalls at night in the snow. Considering the pitiful chances I’ve had all winter to this point, I’m not getting my Read more... you know you want to.
Here's one more from the Wild Photo Adventures TV show that will airing on PBS this year. I promise, I'll post something other than a waterfall for tomorrow's Nightly Night Photo.
Here’s another shot of the waterfall that Doug Gardner and I photographed at night for an upcoming Wild Photo Adventures TV show. How does it look to you? Does it look real? Whether or not you think it looks real, do you like it? In the online night photograph class that Donna Eaton and I teach each month for Read more... you know you want to.
Season 4 of Wild Photo Adventures will be airing soon all across the nation. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and check it out. My friend Doug Gardner does a terrific job both producing and hosting the show. I’ve been on a few of the shows in past seasons and I was Read more... you know you want to.
Okay, one more waterfall and I’ll see if I can find something different for tomorrow’s nightly image. You know the drill by now, right? This is a static star image, so I shot it at f/4, 25 seconds, and ISO 1600. I light painted the waterfall with, you guessed it, an LED flashlight with a Read more... you know you want to.
Are you tired of waterfalls, yet? Hope not, because I’m gonna be posting a lot more of them over the next weeks and months. For this shot, I used the same technique as for Thursday’s waterfall. A typical static-star exposure of f/4, 30 seconds, and ISO 1600 captured the sky, while light painting with an LED Read more... you know you want to.
To create this photo, I used nearly the same technique as with the waterfall in Wednesday’s post. See, this is starting to sound pretty easy, huh? This is 35 exposures for the star trails at f/4, 4 minutes, ISO 400 and one exposure for the light painting on the waterfall at f/4, 88 seconds, ISO Read more... you know you want to.
I used the same basic approach to this waterfall as I did for yesterday’s shot, except that in this case I went for static stars instead of star trails. I used the same blue gel filter mounted in a GelGrip™ for light painting the waterfall. In this case, I didn’t need to stack exposures. This Read more... you know you want to.
It’s hard to think of a better subject for a nature photographer than a waterfall. I’ve been shooting them for nearly 30 years, so when I started getting serious about night photography a few years ago, it was only natural that I would work on ways to incorporate waterfalls into my night shooting. Over the next Read more... you know you want to.
