Keep It Steady

“Everything that is beautiful and noble is the product of reason and calculation.” – Charles Baudelaire

The trickiest part of long- exposure photography is keeping the camera still while you take the shot. When I first started doing it, I tried to do it once by holding the camera still myself. It didn’t go well. Any slight movement while the shot is being taken messes up the entire photo, and I don’t exactly stand still. After seeing my first few attempts, I decided to invest in a mini-tripod to take with me while I ride my bike and a remote. These small purchases helped me capture the shots I was looking for.

I took these shots of the clock tower that sits on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway in Charlotte, N.C. This is a spot that I ride my bike to. The clock tower is located right by two major roads. I had a hard time positioning my camera to get the best view with my tripod because I wanted to capture as much as I could, and I didn’t want to be in the way.
