Photo Week Bus Tour - Clip 10

All right so we are writer park here um it's kind of like the last minute photo challenge do what you can so I am I love water anything any time I get a chance to shoot water I'll shoot it what I'm going to do here is so we're standing on the bank if you want the easy shot the easy shot is shoot out there into the water I always like four ground foreground is one of those things that I guess I'm always looking forward to improve the photo so there's a little bit of a dead tree out there um again you could stand that the bank you can get the shot you're going to get it's not really deep water it's not really cold so I'm just gonna walk out there and get get what I think is a better shot the reason why I'm going out there is because if I shoot this way and get the water won't get the sun in the shot but if you look over there there's some back there and I'm hoping when I get to that side of the log I'm hoping that I can get the sun into the shot and makes it a little bit of a better phot...

o so that's the that's the idea behind it wish me luck well it's colder than it looks yeah set up the tripod it's actually a little bit deeper than I thought it wass um but all I'm trying to do is position myself so that it can get this in the foreground and get the sun coming through the trees in the upper left hand corner of the shot I don't want the sun all the way out because then it's just going to overpower the photos so I can get it coming through the trees you have that nice little sun star I'll shoot it f twenty two see what way take a test shot the idea is trying to get as much motion as I can in the water any time you're shooting if you kind of see that you could see a lot of little mini rapids and a lot of motion in the water so I want to capture as much as that as I can what I'm going to do is raise my apertures highs aiken go so f twenty two if that doesn't work lower my eyes so I got it down the I s o sixty four and even at that I don't have a fast enough or have a fast enough center speed I want it slower so I put a three stop usual density filter onto the camera so that's going to slow my shutter speed down enough and I can capture the water coming around and makes these little patterns around the tree and everything you go a little bit closer wait go so when uh the idea was, and I think it actually worked out really well. Get. This is your foreground. Get a little bit emotion coming around the tree. Capture the motion in the water and include the sun into it, just to add another element to help out the photo. And you get a nice son, start coming through the trees that
