Takin’ a longer Peek
Bossier City, LA

This photo was taken one evening I was teaching about “the Golden hour” (or magic hour) in photography. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_hour_%28photography%29 We drove south on hwy 71 and pulled off at the lock and dam, I thought it would be a nice place, secluded (good for teaching, less distractions) with a cool view. Easy to use the sunset to make silhouettes and have the night sky lit up. This particular day was cloudy, so we were somewhat limited and couldn’t get “cool reflections” off of the water. We played around with long exposures using a tripod. Overall, we learned quite a bit and started to understand more of the mechanics of photography.

I hope you enjoy!
