Behind The Shot: “The Beacon And The Color Of Light” By Harry Lichtman—Grinnell Point, Glacier National Park, Montana

Posted By Kristan Ashworth
So often, photographers talk about the color of light and its influence on the interpretation of a landscape. That’s probably why landscape photographers chase the warm colorcast that’s produced near sunrise and sunset. This phenomenon was never so evident to me as in an image I took in Glacier National Park during sunrise. The view …

Photographing Reflections: Beyond the Mirror

Posted By Michael Frye
Creek descending through a granite basin, Yosemite NP. The sun was hitting the rocks just beyond the top of the frame, reflecting the gold color into the water, and even onto some of the polished rocks on the right.
When people think of photographing a reflection, they usually think of a mirror reflection, like a mountain reflected in a tranquil lake. I’ve done my share of those, but I think it’s often more interesting to just look at the colors, textures, and patterns on the water’s surface. During my just-completed Hidden Yosemite workshop we …

Reflect Your World

Posted By Ian Plant
"Light Bend" - Chapel Pond, Adirondack State Park, New York
If there’s anything better than nature, it is nature reflected—you essentially get two for the price of one! I’m always on the lookout for opportunities to reflect my subjects in water, whether still water or moving. Reflections are a great way of showing nature subjects in an interesting way, and of creating abstract and impressionistic images. While recently leading a photo …
