Dallas Downtown Skyline

My first attempt at shooting the Dallas Skyline. I had lots of fun and learned a few new things:

#1. Bring repellent with you! I usually never get bit by bugs, but I was definitely getting attacked this time.

#2. Finding the perfect location takes time, so make sure you show up early so that you can find the best place to shoot before sunset.

#3. It is very important once you find your location to set your camera on a tripod and DO NOT MOVE IT from that location. If you want to use Photoshop and composite all your photos together this is really important.
I did not composite any of the images below because I kept moving my camera. I wasn’t fully satisfied with how I framed up my composition, so I kept moving it around.

#4. Have fun. Don’t stress about it if it doesn’t turn out exactly how you envisioned it. Play with the f-stop, ISO, and shutter to see how they affect each of your images.

*On all of these images I used my Nikon D600 with my Tamron 24-70mm.

First Attempt-

 I didn’t have the best lens for this location, so I ended up not liking this location and decided to try it again another day.

Second Attempt-

Still not a fan of the location, but was better then the last one.

Overall, it was a great experience. I look foward to doing again sometime!
