Waterfall Photography Settings

This is how I shot – Washout

The lighting was not very good the shot was in a wooded area around 10am in the morning.
Taken at The Brandywine Falls in Northfield Ohio

My Camera is the Canon Digital Rebel XTI 400D and I used a Sigma Telephoto 28-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro Autofocus Lens

I had the honor of doing a collaboration with Jo O’Brien
Please also check out her portfolio it is amazing!!
I have also had lots of questions how I do this.
She had an image that we worked on together and I did some post processing using selective coloring. Its a technique that I would suggest everyone try or learn.…

Go Here
if you have not yet seen it.

There are several ways to achieve this.
I use photoshop elements and find it the easiest to use for doing this.
- Trace the images that I want to leave color using the lasso tool (Can take a long
time but its worth it)
- After you have traced everything you want to leave color goto select and click inverse.
- By clicking inverse you are now on the outside of the images that you traced.
- Click on enhance and adjust color then adjust hue
