Panoramas and polarizers: Adam Gibbs captures coastal waterfalls with the Nikon D850

We join photographer Adam Gibbs as he explores an old-growth forest along the western coast of Vancouver Island. In this area, he hikes the Juan De Fuca Trail, which includes a pair of nice waterfalls.

In the video below, we get to learn about how Gibbs approaches the different scenes. At the first waterfall, he will definitely be using a circular polarizer to reduce reflections. A polarizer also helps you to slow the shutter speed down, but if it's bright enough, a neutral density filter can also be necessary.

For the four featured images in Gibbs' new video, he used the Nikon D850. The first two images, which are panoramas stitched using four vertical images, he used the Nikon 24-120mm f/4 lens. For the other pair of images, they were single frames, the first using the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 and the second with the 24-120mm lens.
