This week’s Phottix Weekly Photo comes from Marty Bugs – and was posted to Phottix flickr group.
Of this shot, Marty says:
A one second exposure captures the movement of the waves on this windy and stormy day earlier this month. The long exposure was possible due to the 10-stop ND filter I had screwed to the front of my Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens.
The 10-stop ND filter is really just an expensive piece of dark glass that only allows a small amount of light to get through, thus allowing longer exposure photos, even in broad daylight.
On this particular afternoon, the wind was really blowing (much too strong for my kite aerial photography rig), and the waves were crashing over the rocks.
The longer exposure allowed me to capture some of the movement of the water and waves.
Camera triggered with a Phottix Plato remote shutter release.
As seen on my blog.
