Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls

Don't go chasing waterfalls

Spent a few hours at Longwood Garden on this blistering hot day to learn the principles of daytime long exposure.  I set up shop at the waterfalls adjacent to the Chimes Tower. The above photo was created using a B&W ND10 circular filter. It took time to figure out the f-stops and exposure times that worked in capturing the type of photo I was after.  Believe me, the photo still needs more post processing work but it gives a basic idea of the type of photos you can capture with daytime long exposures. The EXIF data is as follows:

Camera Canon EOS REBEL T1i
Exposure 91
Aperture f/8.0
Focal Length 12 mm
ISO Speed 100
Exposure Bias 0 EV
Flash Off, Did not fire

The next photo was taken without an ND Filter with the following EXIF data.  I am continually impressed with the quality of photos taken with the 40mm f/2.8 and would recommend this lens to new photographers as a replacement for the kit lens.

Old Man Waterfall

Camera Canon EOS REBEL T1i
Exposure 0.5
Aperture f/16.0
Focal Length 40 mm
ISO Speed 100
Exposure Bias 0 EV
Flash On, Did not fire

I still have a substantial learning curve with daytime long exposures and look forward to many more chances to explore long exposure photography.   If you are interested in learning more about this fascinating type of photography, check out this video from Scott Kelby where he shares ideas on how to shoot daytime long exposure photography.






Back To Good – Breakfast With Santa

Dinner is Served

Spent Sunday with the niece and nephew at Longwood Gardens Breakfast with Santa program. Ava was so star struck when meeting Santa she forgot her carefully curated list of Christmas gifts, making my little diva quite contrary until I promised to help her write a letter to Santa.

Zen and Tulips at Longwood Garden

Longwood Gardens in springtime is a sight to behold. Spent a few hours walking around the garden and taking photos of the colorful springtime plants. The tulips grabbed my attention for a good hour, then wandering towards the Italian Garden, I came across a stunning purple flower covered glade.

Enjoy a few of my favorite photos from this visit to Longwood Garden. All photos taken with either Canon EOS Rebel T1i and Panasonic DMC-LX5

Is it Real?

After a few hours of walking around Longwood Garden, it was great to sit and enjoy the cool breezes coming off the large lake. Thanks to Famous Footwear for providing  comfy shoes for this photo walk.

Musings at Longwood Garden

Thursday night I had the opportunity to spend time photographing a spectacular fountain show held during spring and summer months at Longwood Garden. The show is part of the price of admission and if you are visiting the area, I highly recommend a visit to this garden.

For the shutter bugs – I shot the fountains with a Canon 40d and 12-24mm Tokina lens. Feel free to review the EXIF data provided with the photos. A tripod is essential, a monopod can also be used, but not where I shot these photos. If you are really nice, and did not vote for Obama, I’ll share the location with you.

There is nothing better to help you unwind then to walk around a world class garden.

Walking into the Conservatory, the intoxicating smell of Jasmine was the first thing to greet visitors. As always, I’ve a camera or two with me when I visit.

Above is a sample of what was on display yesterday in Longwood Gardens.

Late Night at Longwood Gardens

Longwood Gardens offers a free (included with admission) water fountain show every Friday and Saturday nights from late spring to early fall. A good opportunity to learn how to effectively use a monopod in order to capture some dramatic images that would be impossible without a tripod or other stable base.

I am a quick learner….more of my images can be found a Ancora Imparo and Flickr.
