Sunset Ogwen Falls Snowdonia

Sunset Ogwen Falls Snowdonia - In this landscape photography video I visit the Ogwen Falls in Snowdonia at sunset. I wasn't that confident of getting particularly good light for photographs.

I had chosen this location because if the light was poor then the waterfalls would hopefully give me some alternative landscape compositions to work with.

So I take the opportunity to explain how I set up my camera to expose for moving water. As it happened, the light turned out to be excellent and the mountains made for fine subjects for my photographs.

So my shots were at much wider focal lengths than I had I bargained for at the outset.

I reminded myself of a couple of very valuable landscape photography lessons on this shoot. 1: It's definitely helps to be adaptable be prepared to change your plans if necessary, to take advantage of changing circumstances on location.

And, 2: Working with the same composition across across varying light conditions can make for very different images.

It turned out to be a very enjoyable landscape photography shoot in the mountains and in addition to taking photos of the waterfalls, I also covered a spot of history with a short piece on the road bridge constructed by Thomas Telford in the early 19th century.
