My Trifecta

DeSoto Falls Winter-Toby Gant-2014

When shooting outdoors some captures can be a real challenge. There can be many factors that make or break a shot. It is not like shooting in the studio where you can control and program every facet of your operation like it is almost an assembly line. (Your subject excluded of course.) You have to constantly account for changes in lighting, shadows and weather conditions.

For me I am always looking for the perfect mix of even lighting, good weather and an interesting subject. (My trifecta.) I was rewarded with such wonderful conditions recently while visiting DeSoto Falls in Georgia’s Chattahoochee National Forest following a rare winter snowstorm in this part of the country.

I captured this image using my 24-70 mm f/2.8, tripod mounted and a circular polarizer. Thanks as always for stopping by.

  1. Thank you for liking “Spring Is Here!” This photo is a great example of your trifecta concept. I like the combination of flowing and frozen water as well as the contrast between the green trees and the autumn leaves. Beautiful work! 🙂

    • Your “Spring Is Here!” post is beautiful. The colors are wonderful and the sky is simply amazing. It most certainly would fall into the “my trifecta” concept.Wonderful capture!
