Keep it stable

NPhoto - - The NPhoto Apprentice -

John sug­gests set­ting up a tri­pod or us­ing a mono­pod to re­duce shak­ing and ver­ti­cal move­ment when you’re shoot­ing from a fast-mov­ing boat. Al­ter­na­tively, a sta­bilised lens, such as one of Nikon’s Vi­bra­tion Re­duc­tion (VR) zooms, makes a wor­thy in­vest­ment if you’re head­ing out on the trip of a life­time. John also rec­om­mends a po­lar­is­ing fil­ter when shoot­ing near rivers and lakes to re­duce glare on the sur­face of the wa­ter and deepen blue skies.

Bal­anc­ing act

John ad­vised Luis to set the white bal­ance to its Cloudy pre­set for sun­sets, as this will pro­duce richer, warmer im­ages, but to switch it to Auto or Day­light once the or­ange colours dis­ap­pear.
