Indoor Fountain Swirl
Reminder: I launched blog.jstuartstudios.com this week. The blog has all of the photos within this Travelogue, but it is more user-friendly. Don't worry, you can see the large images you are used to by clicking each image.
While traveling photographers constantly look outside to find the next image, but sometimes great photographs can be had indoors at the hotel. The picture above was taken in the atrium of my hotel just before I ventured outside to capture the deep blue hues after the sun set.
To increase depth of field and create a swirl effect in the water, I used f/16 at 8 seconds for this exposure. Tripods may be cumbersome in certain circumstances, but it’s the pits when you are left struggling to stabilize the camera on makeshift supports while traveling. I always take my tripod with me when I know I will photograph at sunset or after. Look on the bright side, carrying a little extra weight equals a stronger grip that will come in handy for long photo jobs!
