Scattered Sky

Camera: Canon 16-35L @ 35mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1.3 seconds – ISO 800

Yesterday when I was on my way home I noticed the sky looked a little scattered. I thought it was worth stopping to grab a quick picture, so I did just that. I didn’t feel like dragging out my tripod and setting it up, because I was afraid the sun would completely go down and I’d lose all the colour in the sky while doing it. So I just place my camera on a ledge and used one of my fingers under one side to level it off and let the shutter go. Who needs Manfrotto when you got ManPhoto tripod ;).

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Note: I don’t really recommend this technique for long exposures, if you got the time just use your tripod.

  1. I think sometime you got to do what you got to do to get the wanted shot, I think it’s better to try something and still get a wonderful shut rather than no shot ….. and by the way this shot is beautiful

  3. Great night sky, but also a great night show with the started lights, and I especially like the blue of the tower near the center of the photograph, which draws your eye in and its backdrop is a colorful blend of that sky
