[15 imgs] Two months of daytime long exposure fun
Posted By: twitch, 08-09-2011, 08:53 PM

This is a collection of images I've been shooting in the past 2 months during lunchtimes or commutes home, all long exposures achieved through the use of ND filters. It's been a fun learning experience, me and my mini tripod and 6 & 10 stop ND filters are now well acquainted

If you are a reader of the "DA15 controls my mind" thread then don't read any further, you've probably seen all of these before

Fantastic images! Lots of inspiring work in your photostream as well.
Another day when I come to this site and see examples of photography that shows me just how much I have to learn.

Thanks very much for all your comments and kind words

I've had a couple of PM's asking me which brand of ND filters I use; I used a B+W 10 stop ND 49mm filter for all of these shots except #9 & #13 when I used a B+W 6 stop ND 49mm.

I'm getting 15sec with ~ f13 or so, around 30sec with f22. Are you using ISO80 or 100 and a really small aperture? If you are then maybe your 9 stop ND isn't really a 9 stop in reality?

Thanks for responding, I have used up to f27 and low ISO, so you may have a point about the filter, but that is what it says, super dark in appearance. I thought maybe you shooting in some cloud situations that may be the difference. I will play again tomorrow in bright sunlight situations and see what I come up with. thanks Bob

You should be getting much long even in bright sunlight, sounds like you may have a 6 or 7 stop?
