It’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog. I’ve been doing more video editing than taking photos lately. Yesterday I decided to change that. After a super busy weekend, I sent a text to my photography mentor and asked if he was going to take photos that day. We decided to go to Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge and take photographs. The waterfalls in the Gorge area attract a lot of visitors and it was pretty packed yesterday. We hiked Horsetail Falls Trail which takes you to the upper falls of Ponytail Falls. We didn’t take a tripod so the waterfall shots don’t have the silky water look. On another note, do not wear Nike Free sneakers when hiking this trail. There are a lot of sharp and rugged rocks on the trail. I felt like I was walking barefoot. 🙁 Great for walking, not so much for hiking.
Next we went over to the Vista House and the other view point west of that. We went over to the Eastbank Esplanade to take some photos of the Willamette River and the bridges. We finally ended up at the new bridge Tilikum Crossing that will be opening later this year. To my surprise there were a lot of photographers with their camera and tripods photographing the bridge too. And there was a guy out with a super fancy drone taking aerial shots of the bridge.
It was nice to get out and take photos just for the heck of it and sharpen the skills. I edited these the MCP Actions Mini Quick clicks in Adobe Lightroom.
