I found the setting that holds the shutter open for photos of fountains, waterfalls, etc. Neglected to note and can't find the title in the index. Used every word I can think of- delayed, exposure, etc. Camera is the EOS Rebel T7. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Read the instructions on Bulb. Page 114 has the steps and the shutter is open up to 30 seconds. Like to try this on a fountain or waterfall. Thanks to all.
I could be wrong, but I don't think you'll need to hold your shutter open for as long as 30 seconds, Anywhere from 1-10 seconds should be long enough. If you have a tripod, mount your camera on the tripod, set your camera up for a 2 or 10 second delay, set your shutter speed, press your shutter, and step back from it so you don't jar it.
If you do a Google search on Photography Shooting Waterfalls, you should find plenty of tips on doing that.
Reviewing this and plan on experimenting with some of the streams and waterfalls in the mountains. I also have a cable remote that would eliminate shaking the camera on the tripod. Have done this along with the 2 second delay.
FWIW, I have my camera set up in the kitchen, looking out the window at suet blocks for attracting birds. I use the cable remote to "hide" to avoid spooking the birds.
Good idea. Thanks. The corded remote only has a 6 ft. cord. I can "hide" from birds, shooting through the window but the cordless would be much more "efficient" to be hidden from view. Some outdoor photographers will set a camera for roaming wildife as deer, hide in some sort of blind and use the remote to take the photo. Got the $$$ in the account to buy one.
