Niagara Falls at Night – 30/Project52

Working without a tripod is always recommended, working without a tripod in low light is vital … how about doing a long exposure without a tripod?

Ottawa, Canada Timelapse Video - Video fo Timelapse from Ottawa Canada

Timelapse of Ottawa, Canada

Niagara Falls : 29/Project 52

I haven’t updated the Project 52 in a while and will have a few catch-up posts this week in relation to it. This weeks project 52 post is of Niagara Falls, A Panoramic View with the Maid of the Mist. Luckily it was a good day with good sunshine which always helps when shooting water, adds colour and stops it looking grey. Blue skies also lend a nice contrast and introduce good colour. I shot this from the The Journey […]
