Day 4.1 – Grenoble to Annecy

In the previous post, I wrote about the specific shot that this trip was based on. Afterwards, I continued on and quickly arrived at my second spot. My initial research showed it would be difficult to get a good place to stop, but I found a rest area that had a good overall view of the subject. I could tell as I set up my camera that it wouldn’t be anything spectacular, but it was at this point where I […]

Day 1 – Saintes to La Roque-Gageac

I woke up Sunday morning exhausted since I was up until 5am at the wedding reception and thought we had to be out of the hotel at 10:00. This affected my willingness to take pictures throughout the day, but more about that later.  Having a good 4hr drive to get to the first hotel, I left earlier (1pm) and took the main highway further than planned. While this skipped some of the locations I mapped out, It also allowed for […]

Summer in Montreal

I went out a few nights ago to take sunset pictures. I had been aching to get out on a nice summer night to try a new spot Nick and I had found. I wasn’t able to find anyone to go with, so I packed my stuff and went out solo. With potential fireworks that night as well, I figured maybe I would try those out after. I was able to find parking easy enough and got to the water […]

Cap Saint Jacques – Sunset Photoshoot

Around 5pm one Saturday night, I found myself dropping the kids off at their grandparents’ house. I had packed my camera in the car since the sky looked like it might provide a good sunset. Since I had my new Tokina 11-16mm with me, I was eager to try it out at Cap Saint Jacques. I had succeeded in getting one decent sunset there, and was interested in using the new wide angle to get a better one. When I […]

Jan 29th – Sunset Photoshoot

Since the last fireworks shoot, I have been wanting to return to the same spot to take a sunset picture. It looks over the city, and from what I could guess, the sun should set to the left of the tallest buildings. Sitting at home during the day, the weather report was looking like clearing skies at around 4pm. With sun setting around 4:30, I was betting on some good clouds to take pictures. I headed down with all my […]

ND & Graduated ND Filters

I have wanted to use a Graduated Neutral Density filter for a while. To be honest, it is mostly for the cool factor, but I can definitely see what the benefits would be. I have a good amount of photographs where the sky is blown out, with the most recent ones happening when I was photographing the falls in Rawdon. This week I finally went out and bought one. With that said, I am writing this article based on researching […]
