Waterfalls are a very popular subject for photographers and with great reason, they're dynamic and every waterfall is different. With different lighting conditions and depending on recent weather, even the same waterfall can vary dramatically over time. Photographer Adam Gibbs recently headed to Englishman River Falls on Vancouver Island to try out a variety of compositions.

Gibbs was equipped with his Nikon D850 and a pair of lenses, the Nikon 16-35mm f/4 and Nikon 24-120mm f/4. In the video below, Gibbs discusses how the two different lenses open up different possibilities for composing landscape photos and how a wide versus long lens changes your approach to a scene.
