Photography Information:

Emerald Lake, BC, Canada Photography – This is one incredible Canada photography spot. This location will blow your mind when you get here. Extra Eyes Photo Tours do a tour here every June, and that is when this award-winning photograph above was created. You will want to bring your wide angle lens and a circular polarizing filter on this trip. The water is still, so there is no long exposure photography going to happen here. You can get some dynamic colors here. Your circular polarizing filter will be sure to take the silver reflection off the lake and give you a vibrant reflection as seen in the main award-winning image.

Lens: this area is a wide angle lens locations. I would bring a zoom lens for the wildlife that you may encounter also.

Gear: To get started doing your photography bring your tripod and your circular polarizing filter. The circular polarizing filter will make your white puffy clouds burst and deepen the blue around them. It will also take the glare off of the water and replace it with reflection. Bring your tripod in case there is not a lot of light to work with to get your depth of field when desired.

Gear List at a glance: Circular polarizing filter, neutral density filter, tripod, shutter release.

If you don’t have a neutral density filter, you can buy one here.

 

Shutter Priority Mode is used when our main priority is getting the right shutter speed. Shutter speed controls how fast the shutter opens and closes and is responsible for stopping action and getting crystal clear images when our subjects are moving. To read the basics of shutter priority Go to the Shutter Speed Page.

Shutter speed is used to get the milky water look on moving waters but the best way to do it is to also control your aperture and your shutter which is done in Manual mode. You can read about How to Shoot Waterfall Photography here.

During the day you would also need a neutral density filter when trying to blur the moving waters. Go to the Neutral Density Filter page and read about how to use them.

Aperture Priority Mode is used when our main priority is controlling the depth of field. It is often used for macro or close-up photography on things such as flowers so we can blur the background. It is used in school class photos when we focus on the first row and we want the 3rd row to also be in focus.  If you are not familiar with shooting in aperture priority you can read our Aperture Priority Page here.

Shooting in manual mode is a little more difficult. You will have to adjust your shutter speed and your aperture instead of only setting one and letting the camera do the other. It is used for waterfall photography, night photography, portrait photography and a few other things.

You can read more details about waterfall photography here. You can read about night photography here. They both explain the basics of shooting in manual mode.

Shooting night sky photography is actually very simple. It may appear to be complicated at first glance but if you read our section on Dark Sky Photography you can see how it is not as overwhelming as you would think.

There is also some good information that will be useful on our Dark Sky Photography Information page.

Find a workshop near you. Go to our Photography Workshops page and see if there is something for you. 

Shooting waterfall and milky waters photography require a tripod and some knowledge in shooting in manual mode.
