– John Steinbeck
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.
