A Shot A Day – 2016 (05/16/2016)
Once you begin to really think about it, there are literally limitless numbers of perspectives available on shooting a single waterfall. Another image from the Ricketts Glenn Long Exposure Waterfall Workshop.
Canon EOS 5DS R, Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8 IL USM
ISO 250 – 180” @ f/16 – 70mm

In taking this image I was thinking about a few things…
One, I wanted the rocks in the foreground as entry points into the image.
Two, I really wanted to emphasize the layers of the waterfall as it descended.
Three, overall exposure was a concern as I wanted to keep details in the shadows as well as have highlights in the water that were not blown out.
And lastly, four, exposure length was a variable that needed to be controlled, as I wanted some blur but not so much that the structure of the rocks underneath got lost.
