Nikon Z 24-200 Long Exposures

by on Jul.31, 2020, under Life, Photography

For these images I’ve dropped in a Lee LittleStopper 6-Stop ND filter to drag out the exposure

The 6-Stop ND is a very handy filter which turns seconds into minutes – literally…  The exposure calculations are that easy. If the before (adding the filter) exposure is 2 seconds, the after is 2 minutes

In this first image it was still reasonably dark (facing away from the coming dawn). We have a 155 second exposure which has nicely smoothed the harbour waters. This city was also starting to be heavily shrouded in fog by this stage so it’s given the whole image this sort of mystical blur

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

In this second we’re pointing towards where the sun would rise and the clouds were putting on quite a show (unfortunately behind the buildings :))
