Stopping Time @ Forresters…

by on Jul.09, 2013, under Life, Photography

In the lead up to an epic evening of light painting at Forresters beach on the NSW Central Coast I got out the Lee BigStopper for a long exposure seascape.

It was very overcast and dull anyway so even the “normal” exposures were relatively long even though it was still twenty minutes till sunset. So I pumped the ISO a bit and opened the aperture a little so I didn’t have to wait for an insanely long exposure to complete in the dropping light.

Here we have a four minute LE with a Lee 0.6 Hard Grad ND, Heliopan CPL and the Lee BigStopper for a really dreamy seaside look

Just so you can see the comparison to a “normal” shot at the same time – here is the frame I took immediately before the above (with just the Lee 0.6 Hard Grad ND & Heliopan CPL)
