- Weather Sets the Scene
While you don’t have control over the weather during your visit, it can significantly impact your photography. Any day can make for a great shot. Ideally, a day with blue skies and some clouds makes for a comfortable day as you tour Niagara Falls and can provide a balanced scene and enhance contrast for sharper images. A bright and sunny day can produce lens flare which presents like a filter effect. However, don’t be disheartened if you do end up with an overcast day. Such conditions can add a touch of drama to your shots.
