Cascade Peak is one of the most beautiful sights in the Utah mountains. In this video, landscape photographer Adam Barker photographs this majestic peak and shows you how it’s done.
To isolate the peak, Adam uses an extender on his telephoto lens. Because of the longer focal length, he keeps his tripod’s center column low to avoid camera vibration. He divides the landscape into horizontal thirds and experiments with different filters, settling on a warming polarizer with various ND Grad filters for bracketing exposures. Later on, he shows you how to create panoramic images.
Hike Utah’s mountains with professional shooter Adam Barker for tips on using filters to capture Cascade Peak.
