This new article features a selection of 16 images, all taken hand-held at shutter speeds under 1/30th of a second. A number of tips on using a non-EVF camera to shoot at slow shutter speeds is provided in the article. All of the images were captured at the Canso Museum: Whitman House in Nova Scotia.

  1. Tom,
    The white balance seems off in these Canso Museum shots. They have an orange/brown cast to them. What’s up with that?

    1. Hi Bill,
      I used Auto White Balance and it actually captured the yellowish hue that was present in some of the display rooms. If you check the images in the Photography Life article you’ll see that the white balance varies in a number of the images.
