My response to “Tech of the month: Long Exposure” hosted by the peerless perelincolors and lucile de godoy.

I had a lot of fun putting this post together and finally got to use my Light Craft Workshop ND-500 filter – so damn dark you really can’t see through it.

This shot was probably the third or fourth attempt, I may try more, but I wanted to share this one.

Shot with my Nikon D700, Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4 ED lens at 32mm, ISO 200, f/14 with an exposure time of 90 seconds with that big dark filter screwed on tight. The shot was taken in manual mode, bulb setting and I set up and controlled the shot with my Nikon MC-36 remote control.

Whilst the exposure was under way, I entertained my neighbours by walking back and forth, ok cavorting a bit, in front of my camera, which was solidly clamped down on my Manfrotto tripod.

    1. Thank you Desley! I’ve been wanting to try this filter so I can take long exposures in daylight for a long time. I plan to visit the Grote Markt in the centre of Brussel and use it to capture the square in broad daylight and try to filter out the tourists….
