Hi guys, when I was in Melbourne (St Kilda), I wanted to photograph the famous Luna Park.
Different Way of Photographing Landmarks
I wanted to photograph these attractions in a slightly unusual way. I used a 10 Stop Neutral Density Filter in front of my camera so that I can get cloud movements behind me. Also, when people walk in front of my lens, they don’t actually appear in the images.
Highlights from this video:
0:18: Luna Park, Melbourne
0:21 10 Stop Neutral Density Filter
Before Shot – Fast Shutter Speed
Here’s a before image of the Luna Park. That’s a fast shutter speed and you know, cars and people walk in front of it. This looks like an average travel snapshot – not too impressive.
After Shot – Long Exposure (Very Slow Shutter Speed)
Now look at this one. This is the long exposure at about 2-minute exposure and you can see that I’ve got cloud movement. People are actually walking in front and cars are driving along the way, but you don’t see them.
Travel Photography Tip (ND Filter)
That’s why use this little trick when I’m travelling. I bring along my 10 Stop Neutral Density Filter and I put it in front of the camera. It really slows down the shutter speed for me to be able to get the cloud movement.
What do you think? Please leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you.
This is Brent, have an awesome day!
