Lake Cameron – heath ofee dot com

Last night I did my first bit of experimentation with luminosity masks which I’d heard of before but really had no idea what they were. Turns out, they’re a fantastic tool to help manually blend together multiple exposures for landscape photography. I didn’t do too much experimentation – just made a basic mask and applied it to two exposures to yield the result you see below…pretty sweet. If you’re looking to give it a try, this is the tutorial I used: Luminosity Masks. It was very easy to follow.

This shot is from Cameron Lake in Waterton Lakes National Park. Watching the sun rise over the mountains behind and left of the frame to illuminate the slopes on the far side of the lake was amazing. Nothing beats that golden light 🙂

  1. Fantastic! Love the colors, reflections, and drama in the clouds? Are there such things as ripples up there? All these lakes are just glass (I’m sure the ND helps a little) 🙂

  2. Both fundamentally and artistically perfect.

    Great use of thirds, straight horizon, reflection, interesting foreground and overall a very interesting image. Great work, Heath!
