Waterfalls: Hints To Make The Best Of Your Photographic Experience

Waterfalls. A photography gold mine. There's no such thing as a bad waterfall photo, right? Maybe, but it's not as easy as it seems. The base is where the action is and the base can be hard to get to. Even if the cascade you want to capture is in an urban environment, you're generally going to find some rugged terrain. You're going to need to plan ahead, taking into consideration access, proper footwear and clothing, necessary equipment and general personal safety.Access and EnvironmentMost... continue reading

Sunrise vs. Sunset: Which Magical Time Do You Prefer?

As a photographer, you have to take equal advantage of both the sunrise and sunset. However, that doesn't mean you can't have a favourite. I've put together a few of what I believe are the advantages and disadvantages to shooting at these two times in the day. I'm based in Southern Ontario, Canada, on the outskirts of the Greater Toronto Area so some of my reasons may be biased to the location and environment. But, for the most part, the factors are universal.The sunrise... continue reading

Motion blur on subject

I made some photos at a drifting race. First one was approved today. I want to share my technique. First of all, you will need a shutter speed of about 1/8 - 1/20 sec. This is beyond my anti-shake abilities with a 450 mm lens so I use a tripod. Also, I pre-focused on the road - see photo below. But this is not all. Because it was a sunny day and my camera can do only 1/4000, I used a neutral density filter ND8 which gave me minus 3 full stops so with a f11 or f9.5 I was able to lower my shutter speed... continue reading

When is arty arty of when is it farty

So I'm all for creative blur, flair and weirdness, but only if it serves a purpose and it is executed willingly or serendipitously. What irkes me to no end is someone who doesn't have the skill to shoot a "boring" shot, but claims that their "breaking the rules" is artistic expression.My image above was consciously blurred and treated quite harshly. I'm very chuffed the Dreamstime saw the intention, and understood it not to be simply a checks like art image.But, that is where the catch comes... continue reading

When you have nothing to shoot, shoot motion

When you have nothing to shoot you can go to the nearest bus-stop and shoot running cars. Use different shutter-speed for different effects. To freeze motion but still have wheels moving - around 1/1500, to make a natural motion blur - 1/20 or less. It's easier to make running cars images in manual mode, because it gives you a chance to choose suitable aperture and ISO depending on light conditions. Automate may just refuse to work properly or it can all the time make similar images according to it'... continue reading
