View Full Version : Sockeye Salmon

I shot a bunch of photos of the Sockeye Salmon run at Adams River, BC. It was a cloudy day along with a polarizer filter made for either high ISO or slow shutter speeds. I decided to purposely shoot hand held at very slow speeds. Here are three examples of the photos. I used the Orten effect in post. I learned that from a podcast here. I usually shoot black and white but when I go colour, I go colour.

Absolutely in love with that second shot Dan. They are all great but the second one with the water is just super special. :)

Have to agree with Casil on this one. #2 really shows the struggles, and the power of these fish on their fantastic journey.
