Photographing Proxy Falls Oregon

This is one of my favorite waterfalls. Maybe my favorite period!

Proxy Falls in Oregon is a luscious cascade of mist and moss on a steep hillside.

I first shot here around 25 years ago and few photographers had heard of it. There was a small dirt pull off on the winding mountain hwy.  Now a paved parking pull offs, bathrooms, and PAY TO PARK.

Another version of this falls, shot from the other side, is one of my best selling stock photos ever, when you could make money doing this! Well worth the short hike in there. 

Canon 5D and 16 – 35mm lens.

Photographing Wahweap Towers

This is one of the most amazing places I have ever shot! It’s part of Grand Staircase-Escalante NM, Utah.

The soft light is very flat lighting: no whites and no blacks, just light grays and dark grays, so you have to create the black and white. But do you need them?

Honestly, I struggled to find my ‘look.’ The original file has a blue cast from the blue sky above, so I worked that a bit: added blue/took away blue, saturated, added contrast, then took it all away. Today, I decided to do B&W and high contrast. Tomorrow, who knows.
