This image could also have been better with a shorter exposure to bring out the detail in the flowing water.

Spring Flow #1

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Tamron SP 28-75mm F/2.8, ISO 50, f/11, 20 sec, 10 stop ND filter.

In hindsight, I think I could have gone with a lesser stop filter and shorter exposure to maintain more detail in the water.

Test Shot

Awhile back I invested in ND filters with the intention that I would begin to learn to use them properly.  I’ve read, watched videos and studied other photographer’s work in preparation.  I also added an app to my phone to help me determine the correct timing based on camera settings.  After a couple of failed test shots, I managed to get one that gives me hope that with a bit more practice, I will be able to capture more shots using the filters.

After Dark

Recently, after hearing that there would be better than normal northern lights, I headed out to my chosen destination and set up for the show.  Sadly, it turns out the show started after I gave up and went home; however, I at least tried to capture some night sky shots, something I haven’t done much of.  The results are a good starting point to help me learn how to do better in the future and how to improve my post production.  One lesson is to not pick a very windy night as it leads to camera shake on the tripod.  Next time I will not extend the tripod all the way open, keeping more rigid and close to the ground.
