I feel like I have a ton of new waterfall shots in my portfolio, since moving to Oregon. I’m definitely not complaining. It’s always awesome standing in front of large falls like Burney.
This is a 3 shot pano that I took with my Nikon. I merged the images in Lightroom 6, which I feel did a far superior job than Photoshop at merging the images. For some reason, photoshop wanted to slightly rotate and distort one of the images. Next, I made a few adjustments in photoshop to brighten the scene and bring back some color. The finishing touches were made by using Topaz impressions (van gogh preset) and reducing the opacity to somewhere around 40% to give the scene a subtle painterly feel.
Don’t forget, if you live in the Pacific Northwest, or northern California, I’m available for private workshops, where we can hunt waterfalls together, and I’ll teach you how to improve your photography.
Also, it’s not too late to join Shannon and I for our latest challenge, painting with your camera. Click here for details! We’ve already received some awesome submissions and can’t wait to see more.
