A Collection of Images from Travel Photography In A Day For Dummies
Cropping a moon shot
In this late evening image in Venice, the moon and church were just too remarkable to miss. This shot was taken with a hand-held camera, and because a long shutter speed would have resulted in a very blurry image, the ISO was bumped up to 2500. Doing so allowed photographer to shoot a nice, crisp silhouette at 1/500 second (see the photo on the left). Later the photo was cropped, as shown in the photo on the right, to remove the tree in the foreground. The high ISO in this image shows a little digital noise, which is especially noticeable because the image is very dark.
