I always wanted to see a waterfall like that. Is soooo beatufill
And is in Québec. I hope I can go there to study my Master degree in Sherbrooke. But first I must learn French XD
I actually have an awesome tripod that one of my friends bought me for Hanukkah last year. He was all "I love your photography, both architecture/nature and of Seth; here have this $400 tripod that I caught on sale for $95!" which about made me faint, after I squealed with delight of course! It's a Ravelli APGL4 and is just amazing. I just need to practice with long exposure as it is just intimidating for me, not sure why. Same thing with HDR really, I'd love to try it but nervous to. I've only ever done 1 HDR photo but wasn't that happy with it.
Many of my macros, close-ups and product shoots are technically long exposures because I rest my camera on a tripod and leave the shutter open for longer than a split second (of course this means leaving the flash off). And the beauty of it is, most digital cameras come with histogram previews so you can see firsthand how your highlights and shadows are distributed right after taking the picture (and adjust the exposure if need be afterwards). Shooting at home also means you have easy access to the computer to see your photo at high resolution almost instantaneously.
As different as product photography seems to be from long exposures, you can transfer the skills over once you're comfortable using a tripod. Takes a small leap of faith to begin with, but opens a whole new world of possibilities
