I paid a visit to Franconia Notch State Park, in my home state of New Hampshire, the other day. The predominant feature of Franconia Notch is the Flume Gorge, an amazing cascade of water over granite. I brought my tripod, but I absentmindedly forgot to bring the bracket that attaches the D750 to it. That tilting screen on the D750 was about to make itself really useful. I still intended to get that silky water look by using a slow shutter speed, so I made a tripod out of every rock, root, and branch I could find to frame up my shots. Tilting the screen out allowed me to compose when it wasn’t possible to get my eye to the viewfinder.
