Lake Louise – Canada Photography – Hot Spot

Lake Louise Photography Information:

The stunning turquoise waters of Lake Louise provide a dynamic backdrop for any photo. To enhance the reflections and minimize the glare, we always use a circular polarizing filter when shooting on water. The presence of moving water also calls for a tripod to capture the milky effect in long-exposure photography.

A neutral density filter is recommended for daylight shots to achieve even longer exposure times and create a dreamy effect on the water. While sunny conditions are ideal for capturing the beauty of Lake Louise, don’t discount the dramatic impact of big storms with dark clouds rolling through. And as we all know, clouds can add an element of intrigue to photos taken on overcast days in the Canadian Rockies.
