SHOOT­ING ESSEN­TIALS / High or low?

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

1 Tri­pod up high

Hav­ing your tri­pod up high gives you more fore­ground in your com­po­si­tion. The sticks’ paths are clearer, but they also look smaller be­cause the lens is fur­ther away from the sur­face as they wash past. A high tri­pod also means we don’t have to bend down to shoot.

2 Tri­pod down low

Get­ting down low with the sur­face of the wa­ter gives us a very in­ti­mate ef­fect. It’s as if the colour­ful trails are whisk­ing straight out of the photo and past us. The fore­ground is not as in fo­cus as it could be, but that’s fine be­cause the long ex­po­sure blurs ev­ery­thing.
