New Video from Crater Lake


Here is another new video for you… I took this very recently up at Crater Lake… Enjoy!

    Super awesome video – I never realized how much goes into taking a fab photo!! I was there once when I was a girl – good to see it again – it’s so beautiful there.

  • A fly in the soup indeed! LOL.. love these little snippets of rambling contemplation interspersed with some really good tips and insights on how to make beautiful pictures! That shot with the lake and the path is a stunner. More!!!… ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lakes are still in the morning?
    How would anyone know this?
    You should be sleeping at such a time and then you would never even know that such a thing might be happening.
    Note to self: You are right. Continue sleeping in very late every day. Waking up early only raises perturbing questions that end up causing you to question your teachers.

    Trey, very interesting video. Visited Crater Lake several times when I lived in Oregon in the 70’s. One time I saw some people swimming, I thought why not. Well I don’t think I was in the water more than 5 seconds. The water temperature was 36 degrees F. What were those people thinking? Didn’t digital cameras then, but I have some nice Kodachrome slides. Love you photo of the lake and path. Great composition and processing.

  • Always interessino videos! Thanks to you my HDR thechnique is gettino better and better!!! Love ur photos… Love HDR!

  • Like the pictures very much you are very fortunate to have such wonderful scenery in the states.’Question time’ do or did you use mirror up when taking these pics . Also do you have dieback decease on your trees in the States. Just asked as here in Australia we have and you will see this at the tree tops how they are dying. Normally from feral animals and wild pigs. Enjoyed video

  • Thanks for the great tip on changing the relationship of the foreground by getting lower. Seeing it happen on video really opened my eyes to the difference it makes.

  • Ren Okazaki

    This video was magnificent. The zen-like wisdom at the end made me disappointed when it was over.

  • Awesome video mate! It actually inspired me to go ahead and edit together one that I shot the other night while on my way to Omarau… If you guys would care to take a look, I’d appreciate any feedback ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ve spent half of tonight editing together a second part that covers post processing, but I’ll have to finish that tomorrow… Getting late!

  • Thanks all!

    Louis – no I don’t use mirror lock-up mode… I would if it was easier to program

  • Great photos! I went to crater lake back when I was in high school, and I think you really captured the essence of the place!

    Hey Trey!

    In your later Video on your YouTube Channel you show us the stuff in your bag.
    You also show us that you are traveling with a flash.
    Did you ever use it? When? Because I cannot see HDR & flash going together too well.
    Also, I don’t remember any photo of yours that seemed to have flash in it.

  • Andrea Boyle

    Wow, great video and pictures, too. Wish I’d known you were in my neck of the woods so recently! I enjoyed how you captured the Lake in new and creative ways. Maybe someday you will come back and consider us for a photo walk?

  • Excellent video Trey – such a good insight to your workflow, along with some great tips… looking forward to more of these, thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • As always, I love the behind the scenes video! There were a ton of great tips in there and all the shots looked great, that place was beautiful! Any chance you might publish any of those pics on here? I’d love to save it to my “Trey Ratcliff Wallpaper” folder! Hehe ๐Ÿ™‚

  • once again, this behind the scenes piece is awesome. I find it fascinating to listen to how you’ve composed the scene and hear about some of the details at the setting.

  • Jamie Z

    Trey’s ability to share his expertise along with his conceptual thinking provides all of us with a better understanding of the world of light and photography, sans ego. It is a rare gift indeed.

  • john Vito

    Wow super Cater Lake video.. almost like being there. Man-oh-man that first cliff looks like it’s ready to fall down into the lake. Thanks for sharing your morning… even if you had bed head!

  • John E. Laine

    Trey, that was a fantastically helpful video. I have been to Crater Lake a couple of times, and have at least 200 photos of the place, and NONE of them are as spectacular as the ones you are showing here. I am just beginning my photographic journey, and trying to learn as much as I can. I am looking forward to many more tutorial videos. Thanks for sharing.
