After shooting everyday, and sometimes several times a day, while at NSI; I was suffering from a serious case of shooting withdrawl this weekend. The cure was, of course, to go out shooting and a night shoot at the Alberta Legislature in Edmonton seemd like a good idea. With the light show, it is a very popular setting for night shooting.
With the Legislature Building celebrating its 100 anniversary this year, there are additional decorations and banners on display.
While at NSI this past week, I learned of an in-camera technique that can produce a rather artistic result. The best part of this technique is that it's only available on select Nikon models. I guess this is where I could give a "pthhhhh" to all the Canon shooters, but I'll try to be a little more mature than that!! The technique involves shooting multiple images, slightly varying each images, and allowing the camera to combine them into a single image. The following image was produced by (5) seperate shots and zooming slightly between each shot. Other than cropping and converting for use on the web, there was no post processing done in the computer.
The following image was produced by using a 3 second shutter release and zooming the lens while the shutter was open. Other than cropping and converting for use on the web, there was no post processing done in the computer.
It was good to get out shooting again and try out some new techniques that will definitely be tucked away in my camera bag.
