When my section of the class made it to the Teton National Park is was rainy and very difficult to take a picture of anything without a cloud in the way. Though challenging, we were there to take beautiful landscapes, so we made it work.
I took a full-frame camera and took full advantage of it’s bracketing capabilities. I usually shoot with a Nikon D3200 and though it’s been a great starter camera for me, it doesn’t bracket, so I have to do it all manually which is a pain.
With a tripod and a nicer camera though, bracketing landscape photography is a breeze, even when it’s cloudy. Obviously, you want to wait until it’s not pouring, but a lens hood is extremely helpful to protect your lens from getting water droplets on it.

For this last image, I was going for more of a smooth water look. I still should have had a slower shutter speed, but you can still tell that the water blurs instead of freezes. I had my camera on a small tripod and at one point my shutter speed was about 30 seconds I believe. So again, it definitely needed longer. As far as editing goes, there were so many golden reds for fall that I decided to really focus on those since I focused a lot of the green in a previous blog post.
