Juno Beach Pier Neutral Density Filter Over Exposure for HDR

Juno Beach Ocean Park Pier with Textures

Mar 17, 2010 | Photo Art & Montage

Needing a break from my computer, I went to Juno Beach Pier this evening for a breath of fresh air. Plus it was a very beautiful evening for some photography. I also brought along my newly purchased Massa ND Filter which I haven’t even tested out since it arrived in the mail. Being a Florida resident I shoot lots of beach scenes. I haven’t been able to capture the waves the way I envisioned them in my head so I finally broke down and bought a set of 3 ND filter. I’ve been trying to get smooth flowing water as it washes over the beach. That’s hard to do when you’re photographing with too much sunlight. Even if the aperture was as small as it can possibly be, you’d be lucky enough to get 1/50 of a second shutter speed. And that’s not slow enough to get that silky smooth effect. ND filters will allow you to get this effect. This is because ND filters are designed to drop your exposure down by one, two and even three stops, giving you the opportunity to shoot at a slower shutter speed. I felt the result of the finally image need a little pick-me-up so I added some textures.
