Exploring the natural wonders in Yellowstone National Park.
Yellowstone National Park has become one of the largest tourist attractions in the country. Photographers come from all around to capture the phenomenon of this park.
This is quite possibly one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. I set my camera on a tripod and lined up to capture the sun flare through the tall, skinny trees. I had my shutter speed at 0.6″, with an aperture of f/22 and ISO 100.
In post production, I merged the bracketed images and enhanced the details and colors.
This sunset was too amazing not to capture multiple angles. I wanted to capture the reflection of the trees in the water on the left while still capturing the sun flare. I lined up the solo tree to stand on the 1/3 grid line to create a beautiful balance. My shutter speed was at 0.8″, with an aperture of f/22 and ISO 100.
I really wanted to add more color to this shot, so I created a blue and purple mask to highlight in the clouds. I also merged the bracketed images in post production.
I did not do much to edit this photo, it came out almost perfect straight out of the camera. With my shutter speed at 1/25, with an aperture of f/22 and ISO 200, I was able to capture this beautiful scenery of the rushing water and bold, stormy clouds.
The only things I touched up in post were the details and colors slightly.
I love that I was able to capture the bird next to the bison in this composition. For this photo, I had my shutter speed at 1/1600, with an aperture of f/5.6 and ISO 1600.
In post production, I brought out the clarity in the bison’s eye. I also denoised the backgound to create the illusion of a shorter depth of field.
This photo was taken up the side of a mountain overlooking the Artist’s Paint Pots in Yellowstone National Park. I love how the foreground is these small-looking trees, but in reality, they are huge pine trees overlooking the park. My shutter speed was at 1/800, with an aperture of f/4 and ISO 100.
Being able to experience the world in such beauty is such a blessing. No matter the photo, nothing will beat the feeling of exploring what nature has to offer.
