Went to try some long expoures during a particulary stormy day on Tuesday. Everytime I tried to set up a screaming front would roll through. I retreated to try some shots around the power station, I was amazed this two minute exposure is moderately sharp as the wind was blowing the lens around. It was about the only half decent pic from about five hours of wandering around the dunes and standing by the break water getting soaked. To cap off an excellent day I left my Lee Big Stopper on the roof of the car as I rushed to pack up as another front came through. Was it worth it? Er, no. But you can’t win them all….
I still don’t think I’ve really nailed this photo in terms of exposure or composition. Can’t want until I can do 10 minutes plus. There are a few other bit and pieces along the beach in the vicinity that should scrub up nicely as well. This one is a three minute exposure, f11, ISO 100. 24mm. Nikon D4
Been playing around with long exposures, this one is around four minutes, but the remote I have requires I hold the button down while in BULB, which means circulation comes to a grinding and painful halt after a few five minute exposures. I really wanted to do 8 or 10 minutes as the sun went down but my fingers were down for the count. I’ve ordered an inter voltmetre that will make long exposures waaaay easier.
