Photo project – The Colors of Montreal
I am working on a project showing Montreal under its different colors. The idea is simple, through a year, atmospheric and climate conditions change. I hope to show the impact of these changes on a specific scene highlighting the Montreal city.
Why don’t you start a photo project? It will take you photography to the next level! You are working on a photo project? Give us some details; I can’t wait to learn about it!
There are several things that I learned from this experience:
- Weather have significant impacts on landscape photography ;
- On impacts of weather changes, the light can changes very quickly;
- Preparing myself and knowing my gear is mandatory when light changes so quickly;
- The most dramatic changes often occur while the Sun is below the horizon;
- Come in Early, Leave late so I don’t get sorry.
