Shooting Waterfalls

Great landscape photography day out yesterday in the Waterfall Country of South Wales. 

Shooting the waterfalls can be hard work considering that the river is about 600 feet below the path. This means descending and ascending 600 feet with a 15 Kg backpack for each fall. To add to this it was actually snowing in the middle of the day. 

Essential equipment includes weather proof clothing and a weather sealed camera. Oh, and a degree of fitness goes a long way too.

+Peter McClintock A7rII nice one 42MP I suppose you no need to bracketing and Dynamic range is good on Sony that is what I heard.
I have been LR HDR over 6 month it is almost 100% in my work flow now, I know it isn't perfect like you said ghosting etc, but over all it is quick and I can apply noise reduction and Fuji Film simulation much easier.  I am happy with and I am sure Adobe will improve in the further :-)

Portland Bill Lighthouse

We were here on an extremely windy day and the sea looked very ominous. I would have hated to have been out in a boat in these conditions. I'm sure that this lighthouse has saved countless lives and prevented many ships, in the pre GPS era, from running aground on the rocks.

Technical Details: 1/3 sec at f/4.0 and ISO 800. The ISO had to be boosted a little to keep the exposure fairly short, otherwise the light beams would not be sharp. Processed in Lightroom only.

Stormy Seas at Portland Bill Lighthouse

This is a great part of the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, England. +Hannah Young and I spent 5 hours shooting the lighthouse, from early afternoon until well after sunset. The winds were severe and the sea looked very threatening. This is definitely a place we will return to.

Sometimes when a shot goes wrong it can have an unexpectedly good effect. We were out shooting waterfalls in South Wales when these Kayakers appeared, to go over the falls. Because I had been using long exposures (1/2 sec at f/22) my camera was not set up for action, but as there was no time to change, I decided to shoot one or two anyway.

Sony A7rII, 1/2 Sec at f/22, ISO 100.

Cap Fomentor Lighthouse

The Lighthouse at Cap Fomentor. This is an amazing location at the very northerly tip of Majorca. There are great views east and west of the island coast from here, Truly Majora is a hidden gem.

Ready to go...

Another great car from the Eldorado Ghost Town in Nevada. I'm sure it handles well with the slick tyre on one side and tread on the other. Fortunately they don't get much rain here.

Tech details: 3 Exposures merged in Lightroom then photoshop. Sony A6000, 16-70mm f4 at 16mm. 1/350 sec at f4.0.

Waterfall of the Old Ford. Dol Henrhyd, Neath, Powys, South Wales.

This was our first landscape photography outing of the New Year. It is surprisingly easy to get to the waterfall area of South Wales. Just under 2.5 hours from Berkshire. The weather was absolutely tragic as we drove down the M4, however there was s significant improvement once we gained some height.

The air was heavy with mist from the waterfall at this point and fortunately +Hannah Young had the foresight to bring some rain covers for the cameras.

Tech Details: Processed in Lightroom apart from a small cleanup of some branches in Photoshop. 16mm lens, 1/3 sec at f/16. Sony A7rII.

Want to save some disk space?

Why not convert old images that you will not need to go back and edit to DNG?

If you wish to convert TIFF or PSD files you will need to uncheck the box that says "Convert only RAW files.

If you use lossy compression you will get similar file sizes to Jpeg.

See the recommended settings in the image.

Portland Bill Lighthouse

Another late afternoon shot of the lighthouse. This was shot handheld at 1/250 and f/4. The wind was at gale force and I was concerned about camera shake even on a sturdy tripod. I'm really pleased with the performance of the Sony-Zeiss 24-70 f/4 lens on the A7rII. Perfect detail even at 1:1.
