A New Location

I thought I’d check out a new area of Bruce Beach and wait out the sunset and see what I could find.  The photos have turned out better than I had hoped since I forgot the bottom plate of my tripod (that connects the camera…ugh).  I was able to setup my tripod and rest the camera on top of the flat mounting plate on the tripod and use a remote release… maybe its time for that check list I’ve often thought about using before I leave the house.  Usually something is conveniently sitting on my desk wishing it had made the trip.

Let’s have a look:

1)This photo is a single exposure with a graduated neutral density filter, (partially mounted) tripod and remote release.  This area had plenty of rocks to use for foreground elements.  I typically stay in one spot and see how the light changes with a good composition.  Some photographers are constantly moving but not me; I’d like to explore the light more than composition.

2) This photo is a single HDR processed with Nik Effects and then ran through Nik’s Dfine to remove digital noise.  I stuck around after the sun had set (which usually gives great colours) and tried this out in HDR. Although HDR is not for everyone, I like the look of this one.  This is handheld and although 95% of the time I’m set up with remote release shooting single exposures, this one had to be machine-gunned to try to get a sharp photo due to the slow shutter speeds.
