Great shot! Quick question. Why did you use the ND8 and shoot at 1 second instead of shooting without the filter and at 1/4000 or something with just the GND?

:iconjaydigital:
jaydigital Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2010
Hello! Thank you.

I was shooting long exposures of streaking clouds over the hills before i saw this particular scene. At that time, I felt I could make do get the shot that I want with the filter on so I didn't bother taking it off. Sunsets for locations near the equator or tropics can really be fast and I didn't want to miss the opportunity, so I took the shot even with the ND8 on :)

May I ask what the Reverse GND is for? Is it a GND with the tinted glass at the bottom - can't you just turn a normal one upside down?

Oh, and I love this picture, I wish I could've been there too. :D

Funny, I had the exact same two questions as the previous posters. Thanks for the answers and the link, which helped explain the second question.

This is a Fantastic shot. This is the type of image that I've always wondered how the foreground subject can be properly exposed when the camera is facing directly into the sun. My photos like this always sillouette the foreground subject. I'm guessing the answer is just the graduated ND filter? Any other trickery involved (besides your great camera and lens)?

:iconjaydigital:
jaydigital Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2010
Yes, basically its the reverse grad ND and how i use it.

i don't use a gradND holder, preferring to hold it instead during the exposure. this allows me to slightly move the filter during the exposure and get a more nuanced gradation across my frame :)

in post, i will sometimes dodge and burn. but i make sure to have a well-exposed file in order to preserve optimum quality.
