Gear Needed:

Camera that allows shutter speed control and a tripod.

Recommended Gear:

Remote shutter release(to avoid wiggling the camera) and a Circular Polarizer or Neutral Density Filter.  If you don’t have the filters you will need to shoot when light levels are low, almost to the point of getting dark – after sunset and before sunrise.

In this video I use a Canon T5i with 18-135 STM lens with a Circular Polarizer on a Benro MeFoto Travel Tripod.

I mention Back Button Focusing in this video, helpful to keep the camera from refocusing each time you try a shot.

Even with the filters the best time is near dawn or sunset, the rest of the day is too bright, even if it is overcast.
