I been intrigued lately by some Instagram photographers and their beautiful long exposure photographs. Specifically around bodies of water giving them this cool silky/foggy look. It was time for me to experiment!
So I took a shot at it and here’s what I got. I had a tripod, but forgot the tripod plate to attach to my camera! So this was taken while my camera was placed carefully on the pier. It was very windy and the waves were between 2-3 feet in this harbor. I used some Tiffen Neutral Density filters and stacked them, then exposed this image for 25 seconds. I am happy with how it turned out.
This is the JPEG straight from the camera, no editing.
I’ll be doing more of these!! I am looking at getting this filter for my wide angle lens which will allow me to do much more with this technique.
Tiffen ND: 0.6, 0.9, 1.2 all stacked
