I don’t know if you know this, but waterfalls and women go well together. Here and there, I’ve been working on this image of Shannon from this past fall in Ricketts Glen (its still not done.) Oh by the way, you can sign up for a workshop there in Pennsylvania, with us this fall. I’ll put a post together soon with more photos of the area. Its really photogenic.
Back to this image, this isn’t what I had in mind for the final version. This was more of a happy accident that I created while playing around with Topaz Impressions. I really like that desktop app/plugin. I actually used that plugin twice in my workflow on this image.
I still have a surreal version of this image in my head, and I’ll be sure to share it when I finally get it finished. It seems like I have a lot of other things to do these days, besides working on photos, like promote our ebook and workshops!
Happy waterfall Wednesday, if thats still a thing…
Happy Halloween! Quick post today because I’m supposed to be finishing up an article right now, and then heading out to shoot a bit at Lithia Park in Ashland. Oh and I should probably look for a costume for tonight’s party…gotta run!
I used Circular+, Snapseed, and Mextures for the edit of this one.
After a two and a half hour train ride from New York to Connecticut, I joined Shannon for a 4 hour car ride to Ricketts Glen in Pennsylvania. If you’re not familiar with this place, it’s kind of a big deal when it comes to waterfalls. There are a lot to shoot and it looks awesome in the fall.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have more than a few hours to shoot before making the 4 hour drive back to Connecticut. We did, however, shoot 3 waterfalls and some surreal portraits. Shannon was brave enough to get into a dress, and get into some cold water for me. I’m hoping to have time to edit that in the next couple of months. I have a lot of images to work on, after being on the road for nearly 3 weeks.
Ok, this photo was taken with LongExpo Pro, which is good for long exposures on the iPhone. You can also sharpen parts of the image that you don’t want blurry from the slow shutter speed. In this case, I sharpened the rock. I also used Snapseed and Mextures to make some adjustments and add some color overlay.
