Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Helmcken Falls in Wells Gray Province, Clearwater, British Columbia.
Time
It was mid-afternoon, when the sunlight was just right on the water, giving it that pure white shine.
Lighting
I wanted to show off the power of the falls with the natural lighting of the day. Such a beautiful place needs nothing more than natural sunlight.
Equipment
I used a SONY DSC-F828 and a nearby boulder to keep a steady hand.
Inspiration
I love the intensity of waterfalls, and this one's power is amazing to witness. Listening to the roar of the waves crashing into that cave almost seemed to strike my very soul. I wanted to capture that moment of purity and clarity.
Editing
No extra processing was necessary.
In my camera bag
I travel light, especially if I am hiking. My go to camera is a Canon Rebel t6i and a Sigma 70-300 mm lens with macro. It is a versatile lens that allows me to get close action shots of animals and flora without having to carry an extra lens extension. I also carry a Canon wide angle 0.43-59 mm for pictures that are too large for the long range zoom to capture without cropping the landscape.
Feedback
Lighting and zoom are key features for such a shot. I prefer natural lighting, and sometimes that means you have to study your subject before you go to shoot. Find the lighting that suits the subject best. Also pay attention to the weather; cloudy days can make for beautiful pictures but not if you are aiming for bright light. Wide angle zoom is crucial for pictures with a large span of focus. You want a lens that has the capacity to capture the grandiose nature of your subject.
