When shooting in and around water on a wilderness photography expedition, it’s important to be on alert for the smaller details that will enhance your shot—but be careful that you don’t miss the obvious while looking for the secrets to emerge! In this session, photographer Layne Kennedy demonstrates how to capture a variety of perspectives when shooting water scenes. He begins by photographing canoers from atop a rocky hill before capturing images from the water beneath, illustrating how to achieve radically different pictures with a bit of simple repositioning. He also demonstrates how lens type, exposure, depth of field, and time of day can have dramatic effects on the lighting and composition of your photos.
