Ever since moving over to Victoria in January I’ve been meaning to get out and shoot some new coastline. On Saturday I finally got around to it with a trip down to Cape Woolamai off the south eastern tip of Phillip Island. Weather conditions were ideal with some lovely light peaking through the pinnacles lighting the scene nicely. It was a fun outing with quite a few seascape and long exposure photographs captured which I hope to share with you over the coming weeks.
This photograph was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40 and Cokin Z-Pro .9 neutral density filter.
A small buying guide and photography tips to assist you in making the right purchases to photograph daytime long exposures. Using strong neutral density filters will allow you to shoot 1-5 minute exposures during the day depending on the conditions. If you’re bored with photography, neutral density filters are a great way to rejuvenate your hobby and get passionate again.
It can be rewarding but also sometimes challenging as you’re forced to look at a scene from the perspective of how a long exposure will transform it. This guide should help guide you on what equipment you will need if you want to shoot daylight long exposure photography and a few photography tips on how to calculate the long exposure shutter speed.
