again, another photo of the lake near my job where i eat my lunch! i keep going back to this lake because i’m practicing a photo technique that i just can’t nail and i’m frustrated.
unfortunately, what i am trying to accomplish is not seen in this photo. i’ve come to the conclusion that i have the wrong neutral density filter and i can sit out there all day and will NEVER get the photo i want unless i buy the proper equipment.
i don’t know too much about ND filters, i shoot RAW (double pun intended; oh that’s gold) except they are expensive and i’m on the fence about making the purchase.
ND filters allow for long exposures, at least the one i want, and reduce the light that passes through the lens. so instead of seeing still water, with a little hocus pocus (mathematical calculations) and a ND filter, the water and sky would look like…well you have to see for yourself. long exposure samples.
at least now i can move on.
