Whitewater Kayakers

Whitewater kayaker, Missoula, MT.

When I came across these kayakers on Clark Fork River right in downtown Missoula, MT, I had to stop and shoot some photos.  It’s one of those sports activities that a photographer generally doesn’t come across too often.

It was one of those bright sunny days when it’s difficult to capture the full range of lights, darks and midtones in a photo.  The white water can easily get “blown out” or totally white with no visible detail.  I was able to prevent “blown out” areas for the most part.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
