Introduction
I can start off like this – “Seeds of Jay Patel’s appreciation for beautiful places were planted early in his childhood….” but it would get boring really fast. I will just sum it up and say that I am a Landscape and Wilderness Photographer who loves to capture dramatic light. My photographs have been published in various magazines, calendars and advertising materials throughout the world.

Imagine this Scenario - You are overlooking an absolutely stunning turquoise waterfall beneath brooding Icelandic storm clouds. You are about to press the shutter release in hopes of immortalizing all the grandeur of this location at this moment. How do you know if you have the correct exposure so that when you get back home? 

Here is how we do it:

Is Lightroom Dehaze a good tool for a landscape photographer? Sure it is! But not necessarily for the reasons you may think.

These hidden falls descending into an unknown canyon look like something straight out of a storybook.

A stolen shot like this just might be worth every drip on your camera. Follow Jay's simple workflow next time you find yourself in misty, rainy, or otherwise wet conditions and minimize harm to your equipment.
