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 2 – La Roque-Gageac to Lyon

I was pretty excited to start day two and woke up before sunrise. I brought my heavy bag down to the lobby to find it dark and empty. I totally didn’t think of this problem. I packed my bags into the car and went back to my room for about 30min – then waited in the lobby. I probably would have been better to drive around and look for some spots while I waited, but I didn’t think it would […]

Summer

Cottage Country

A close friend of mine has yearly get togethers up north. It usually happens late August and signals the end of summer. Due to his wedding in  September in France (You should know about it by now), it was moved to earlier. The previous year I had just bought my Canon T1i and had  a blast fooling around with night shots. I figured out I would try to push the camera’s high ISO to the max. I haven’t been extremely […]

Vermont Trip – Part I

A few Saturdays ago, I picked up Brad and Jimmy to head out to Vermont to take pictures. The initial plan was to go to Ausable Chasm, but in the end we just stayed in the Vermont hills for most of it. The weather was really nice, but maybe not perfect for shooting. I had a pretty good mapped route set up using Google maps to find other photographer’s shots and locations that might be promising. It is hard going […]

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 […]

Beautiful Carolina – Sunrise Photoshoot

I woke up at 5:30 with the sun rising at 6:30. I grabbed my bag and tripod and started to walk down the beach as the horizon started to lighten. I probably should have gone out a little earlier, but I rushed down the beach and got there in time. I had picked a fantastic day to go out. There were wisps of clouds, and I knew they would pick up the color nicely. I started shooting as light started […]

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 […]
