Photo Spot Details

This plantation is famous for its alley used between the main house and the Mississippi River. The alley was used by the people doing business with the owner of the plantation and had to be impressive. The place is crowded, so if you want to see no-one in your pictures you will need some tricks. The easiest is to be very patient. You can also take several pictures from the same spot and then erase people you don’t want by using layers. Another option it to use a tripod+ND filter to have a very long shutter speed (people moving won’t be seen anymore), however this is not the one I would use first…
