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.

 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance. Captured with the GH5 and 12-35 f/2.8 Lens #lumixloungegh3
 Rainy Day Reflections of Seattle's coolest public library - I almost said coolest building but the new Amazon spheres are crazy cool. I like living in the future - now if we could just ecotopia this place up all would be peachy!
