Salt Creek Falls
My aunt took me on an adventure last fall when I visited her in Eugene, Oregon. We got lost a couple of times, but thats what happens on a real adventure right? We eventually found Salt Creek Falls near Oakridge, OR. This beast is the second highest waterfall in Oregon with a 286 foot drop.
The lighting wasn’t pretty when we got there, but I made do with what I had. Thats usually what happens when non photographers show you around. They don’t know that lighting is very important and think you can just go out and shoot any time of day.
I ended up painting in some light and shadows on a layer of soft light to make the lighting more interesting. Thats something I recommend trying sometime on a boring picture. Use a brush at 10% opacity and paint on a new layer set to soft light using white or black…or you can get creative and use colors.
