For Mother’s Day, we went up to Snoqualmie Falls (about an hour’s drive from Seattle) and had dinner with other family members at the Salish Lodge (it was delicious). Afterward, I did some shooting of the falls themselves as the sun went down. It’s not dramatic in this photo, but the lodge and the cliff below it are painted a subtle orange from the sunset.
What’s more interesting about this image, in my opinion, is that it was shot on my iPhone 5s using an app called Slow Shutter Cam. I steadied the phone on a railing and set the app to take an 8-second exposure, which is why the falls look powdery smooth.
I’m not a fan of apps that slap filters onto photos, but I do like something like this for achieving a look that the built-in Camera app doesn’t do.
I haven’t had a chance to edit the photos I made with my DSLR, but I’m looking forward to them.
