Tips and Tricks

  • Try to capture city panorama. In Copenhagen I choise Tower of Church of Our Saviour. From there you can see the whole city. I make 365 panoramic image and try “Polar panorama effect” or “small planet”.

  • Try to be different. Find new angles, perspectives, try to capture images from low (high) angle position, try new lenses (for example Lensbaby).
  • Motion Blur | Copenhagen, Denmark 2015

Geo-taging photos

With Nikon D5300 I track logs with the location information. The camera’s location data unit can record your latitude, longitude, altitude and time onto an SD card (Duration selectable: 6 h, 12 h, 24 h; Interval selectable: 15 s, 30 s, 60 s.). This function can work even when the camera is turned off (this is great!).
And then I can geotag all my pictures from both cameras (Nikon D810 don’t have built-in GPS).
Here is all my pictures on map:
