I thought I had finished posting photos of Canada when I found this one. I thought that the photo had potential so after a bit of editing I ended up with a version I was happy with. The shot itself was one which I took while walking past this area. Set the camera up on a high ISO (400 or 800 as far as I recall) so that I could get a bit of movement at 1/30s … while all the time trying to minimise hand-shake. The result is one which I am happy with, nice colour, light and the […]

The Notre-Dame Basilica, is located in Place d’Armes, Montreal, opposite where the photo of the Maisonneuve Monument was taken.

I still used the same setup, the wide angle lens, low tripod, cable release but I was not using the ND filters here as there was no need to. In post production I slightly accentuated the highlights and […]

Having got some ND filters, I had being playing around with evening light and captured this shot looking towards the new N25 toll bridge in Waterford as the sunset. I had used an ND4 and a ND grad filter. The lighting was probably a bit too harsh to do a long exposure. I used a tripod, timed shutter, manual focus and IS was turned off (as IS can cause blurry photos when on a tripod). The resultant shot of sunset at the new bridge is shown below. My next attempts at this will be later in the evening, I may […]
