Jordan Roberts Photography

Wahclella Falls, Oregon


I've been on a serious dry-spell lately with photos as the weather along the Gorge hasn't been all that great. I needed to shoot anything, so I decided to scout around. I wasn't expecting to find the last ice chip like this. Winter photos from these waterfalls are rare (with the exception of Addam a.k.a. NWUnseen). Greglief has also posted some from winter, but in all reality they are just super difficult to shoot. I was surprised I could even get the color out of the shot on a cloudy day. The falls themselves were quite saturated to the human eye, my camera had a tough time capturing it though. So here it is. Enjoy!

This is a blend of 7 images. I constructed the background and the foreground separately and then blended the two images.

This photograph looks a lot like a place that I have only seen in my dreams up to now! The water looks really dreamy and the detail I can see in the foreground and the crisp contrast in the background are astonishing! 
Blending multiple images together seems like a very powerful technique to bring out the most of the shots, and Im quite interested in it; does it happen to have a specific name?

Thank you :) Blending comes under many different names. "Hand Blend", "Manual Blending" (probably most common), "Focus Stacking". I personally like to reference it as "Exposure Stacking". But it all depends on the effect you are trying to achieve. Focus Stacking is when you blend multiple focal points throughout the image to create a sharp image from front to back. Manual Blending is when you blend multiple exposures to create an evenly exposed image. To me it's a much more powerful tool then using Graduated Neutral Density filters, plus it saves time in the field and allows you to focus more on the important thing...... photography!
