Dripping Springs

This was another long exposure, although it is hard to tell because there is so little water falling down. Just some from the top center rock and a bit more on the bottom left.

I used an ND8 (3 stop) filter on this shot and the settings were: SS 2 sec, f/16, ISO 160

You can tell it was a little breezy because some of the foliage is blurry near the top of the image from the slower shutter speed.

Lake Sunset Long Exposure

This is a long exposure image using an ND1000 (10 stop) filter. The longer shutter speed time gives the water a smooth texture. Settings were: SS 4 sec, f/14, ISO 100

Just as a comparison, below is the same shot as a regular exposure without a filter. You can see how it now shows the ripples on the water. Settings were: SS 1/125 sec, f/14, ISO 160. I also didn’t take the time to edit out the power lines in this one 🙂

Both images were taken with the Sony a7 III and edited in Capture One and Snapseed.

I got a new camera a few months back and the remote shutter control from my old camera doesn’t fit on my new one, so this longer exposure shot of the sunrise through my backyard trees isn’t as sharp as it could have been.

Then my husband, who is not a photographer per se, reminded me I could have used the self-timer to avoid the camera shake and I just had to laugh at myself.  Oh well!  It was 6am and I hadn’t had my coffee yet. 🙂
