Wild Waterfall Adventures

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 honored that Doug asked me to join him for another episode this year.

Star trails at waterfall

Waterfall photographed at night by Kevin Adams and Doug Gardner on Wild Photo Adventures. Nikon D700, Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8 lens, 51 exposures at f/4.5, 120 seconds, ISO 200. Lighting on the waterfall and trees is natural moonlight.

The show is about photographing waterfalls, which was the subject for a show we did in season 1. But this time we did it with a twist, by photographing at night.

Let me tell you, shooting a waterfall at night with a still camera—where you can crank up the ISOs and use long shutter speeds—is one thing. Capturing video of the process is quite another! I’m certainly no stranger to lugging gear and pushing things to the limit to get the shot, but this is the first time I’ve ever lugged a generator, extension cords, and sets of 1,000-watt lights to a waterfall.  

So how did it all turn out? Watch the show and see for yourself!
