Hi Karl, great class on this type of photography…. I am trying to guess your settings before you actually show them at the end and I’m close which is exciting.
My question is where is your focal point when you are shooting this type of image at a low aperture and at a higher aperture?
Hi, my focus point is either exactly on my main point of interest in the photograph or just slightly beyond it to extend my depth of field further into the photograph. These sort of shots are nearly always done with a smaller aperture so the DOF is quite large on a wide-angle lens.
Hi Karl ! I almost jumped out of my chair to try and pick up the filter from the floor when you lost it in the water ! 😱
I ordered the Lee filters 100 polariser that is the round one you screw on and can turn around to achieve the perfect polarisation you are looking for so at least I am sure loosing it in the water won’t happen (I hope so as it is freaking expensive !!! 300 usd.
This journey is truly amazing following each video one by one from the start 📸 thanx !!!
I wish you and all the community a great evening 🌇
Hello Karl! How did you get the water to be almost misty? There are no sharp details in the water.
Hi Esther, I’m afraid I’m going to have to ask you did you watch the video?
Some lucky woodland creature has a brand new polarizing filter lol!
Ha Ha yes
Another great tutorial with brilliant shots! With the LEE system can I use a Grad ND with the non-100×100 CIRCULAR polarizer (LEE100) that fits into the LEE100 holder? Thanks for the education!
Hi, yes you can.
Is the filter a 2 filter slot or a 3 slot?
Hi Paulo, this one looks like a two but you can convert them to a three or even four, we have several in the studio with 2, 3 and 4.
Did you find the filter and get it out of the river?
Hi, no unfortunately it was never seen again!
sorry you lost your filter. the sacrifices you make to get the job done. great shots!
Magical place. Certainly learning how the use of grad filters can even up the exposure for more consistent results. Thanks.
Hi Karl, big fan and thanks for all the awesome lessons where was this place? It looks incredible!
Hi Pete, Goliath falls in Cornwall
Which Polaraizer Filter you use?
Greetings from Mexico
Hi Nahum, see the equipment lists on the lower right of the page.
As from the date of the shoot thereafter, the back-up or a new one I suppose… 🙁
What type of lee filter do you use? 100mm Filter system or SW150 Filter system?
Karl always uses the standard 100mm system as the widest he tends to go is the 16-35mm Canon lens or 24mm Hasselblad lens, the SW150 is more for physically wider lenses
