I love going to Hamilton to see this waterfall. I recognized the waterfall from the stone bridge.

Thanks so much Kathryn, I am so glad that you like this shot! I am an amateur as well, although now that I have bit more time in the last couple of years I have been trying to improve and learn new skills. Digital cameras are wonderful, they really allow you to experiment both with the camera and the editing software. My motto is, just play and have fun with it. Thanks again and happy shooting! :)

Behind The Lens

Location

I took this photo at one of my favourite spots in Hamilton Ontario at Webster Falls. Webster's Falls is noted for its panoramas, is a 22 metre high classical curtain, plunge waterfall found. It is beautiful area to hike or picnic year round.

Time

This photo was taken in the latter part of the afternoon, in the early month of October.

Lighting

The lighting was all natural for this photo.

Equipment

To take this photo I used my Canon EOS REBEL T2i.

Inspiration

My home city of Hamilton in Ontario, Canada is home to more than 100 waterfalls and cascades, most of which are on or near the Bruce Trail as it winds through the Niagara Escarpment. Webster Falls is one of the more picturesque waterfalls and it is always a pleasure to go and take pictures of them.

Editing

Yes, I did some tweaking in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. First I always like to straighten and crop my photos. Typically if I have taken a decent shot with the camera, I will usually adjust the highlights, shadows, whites, blacks and clarity if need be. With this shot I also went a bit further and adjusted the vibrancy and saturation. Then I adjust the sharpening and noise reduction.

In my camera bag

I typically carry 3 cameras in my bag. A Canon EOS REBEL T3i, Canon EOS REBEL T2i and my Waterproof Canon Powershot D20 cameras. I also have 3 lens I carry, an 18 mm, a 55 mm, and 250 mm lens. I also have my Canon Speedlite 430EX II. I always carry a minimum of 4 fully charged batteries for either the cameras or for the flash and I also have a battery charger with me just in case. I carry a polarizing filter, a little water spray bottle, lens cleaners and a remote for the cameras. It would be nice to travel a little lighter, but I do want to try and be prepared, just in case that photo opportunity does present itself. Mind you, I do realize I need to start bringing my tripod out with me more.

Feedback

My advice is just to be observant and respectful of your surroundings and nature. Soak in all the natural and manmade beauty that surrounds us. If you just stop and really take a look, you will see that there is beauty all around us. If I find something I am inspired to shoot, I try playing with the settings and angles of the shot. I can take several shots of a single scene, with an adjustment here and there, or shoot from another perspective. As an amateur photographer I am constantly trying to develop my eye and skills. Most of all I just recommend that you just have fun with your camera and your surroundings!
