Behind The Lens

Location

While hiking in Gifford Pinchot National Forest I visited the Lower Lewis River Falls and shot this at that location.

Time

I shot this on 07 September 2002 at approximately 12:07 PM.

Lighting

Natural Daylight settings using a Canon A1 SLR camera at ISO 400 and F22.

Equipment

Canon A1 SLR using Kodak 400 film and a standard tripod with cable shutter release. Lens used was most likely my Tamron 28 mm wide angle.

Inspiration

Actually after hiking for a few miles and reaching the mist floating in the air it was the coolness of the falls that inspired this photograph.

Editing

I scanned the negative in a few years ago and saved it via Photoshop CS6 software.

In my camera bag

I use a Nikon D750 as my most used DSLR, but occasionally still use my Nikon D5100 DSLR plus the Nikkor lenses that came with the cameras and filters purchased separately.

Feedback

Of course lighting is always key and angle of shot. Patience is also important so if there are a lot of tourists or sightseers then you must wait (if you don't want them in the photo) or remove them in post processing with computer software (my favorite is Adobe Photoshop CC 2019).
