Learn some tips for shooting in and around water while on a wilderness photography expedition. Layne Kennedy shares tips for composing interesting shots of water scenes.

When shooting in and around water on a wilderness photography expedition, it’s important to be alert for the smaller details that will enhance your shot, but don’t miss the obvious while you’re looking for the secrets to pop out. In this session, photographer Layne Kennedy demonstrates how to get a variety of perspectives of water scenes. He photographs canoers from atop a rocky hill and from the water beneath them, for example, illustrating how to can get radically different pictures just by repositioning. He also shows how to get different results from lens types, exposure, depth of field, and choosing the right time of day for the best lighting.
