Shot this with a point and shoot today on the Rouge River in Southern Oregon. We took the kayaks for a little paddle down the easy part of the Rouge River and ended up way in over our heads. By the time we got to the take out, our boats were totally swamped.
I really didn’t have to do much to this shot to make it work but I did have to bring down the contrast to keep the dynamic range in check. I also took the saturation way down and slowly turned up the vibrance slightly to get an almost black and white image with a slight touch of color. I’ve liked this look for a while now.
