The Natural Bridge

Yoho National Park, British Columbia, BC, Canada

Photography Information:

Plan to spend a whole lot of time at this location. Morning and late days are best only to avoid bus people. Yea, we call them the bus people. It’s the main tourist attraction, and the people will get off the bus and walk right in front of your long exposure and not even blink an eye.  Bring your tripod and your neutral density filter for this fast-moving water. Award-winning images can be taken at this location. This location will amaze you. We are still in awe over this spot, and It’s been a year since we have been there. Extra Eyes Photo Tours will take you here in June and help you get that award-winning shot. ExtraEyesPhotoTour.com Plan to do a lot of photo stitching at this location. You just can’t get back far enough. If you can afford a motion parallax tripod head, this is the time to buy one.  You can get the $100 version since if you can’t afford the more expensive ones. That’s all you will need along with your ND filter to get some award-winning shots.

Lens: This is a wide-angle lens location.

Gear: Circular polarizing filter, neutral density filter, tripod, shutter release.

Camera Settings

Manual Mode:  To do your long exposure running, milky water shots, you will have to use a tripod.  All of your settings will vary depending on the lighting and what neutral density filter you have. You will shoot in manual mode for the milky waters. ISO is always 100 or as low as your camera will allow. Aperture is  f22. Your shutter speed will vary depending on the light. Take some test shots to decide on your shutter speed after you put your neutral density filter on. (It’s like sunglasses for your camera to stop light from coming in). Use your live view mode to focus to lock the mirror up and avoid any camera movement. Use your shutter release or your 2-second timer also to avoid camera movement. Voila. You now have your milky water exposure. You want at least a 2-second exposure for running water. If you don’t have a neutral density filter, you may not get more than 1/15th of a second in the sun. Go to our store to buy your ND filter. We have a 3.0 for super long exposure in the sunshine.
