Rainbow Waters around Payson

Uploaded 9/25/05

 Here I am demonstrating a newly learned photographic technique, from the latest photographic magazines. This is so cool, you may want to rush out with your own camera and try it! The concept is to you start with three images taken on a tripod of the same scene, with movement such as you might find in water falls, lakes or trees blowing in the wind. Next, in the digital darkroom the red from the first image, green from the second and blue from the third scene are separated out then combined to form a fourth image. This image will look just like the other three except anything that moved between frames will show up as a RGB highlight. I then can combine this image with one of the other three for selected regions, or just leave as is for the complete view. When you see these images, you'll understand more what happens.

Photos below taken at the Tonto Natural Bridge north of Payson, and the last image at the Payson Lake.
