100904_018 - Old Saybrook

There are basically two extreme ways to capture moving water: either a high shutter speed to freeze every drop or wave, or a slow shutter speed to blur the flow of water imparting a feeling of motion to the image.

For this image I attached a B+W ND 3.0 filter to the lens to achieve about a 15-second exposure. A 3.0 neutral density filter effectively cuts the light by about 10 stops. This makes composing the dim image in the viewfinder difficult, so the filter is added after all the adjustment have been made.

The image was captured with a Nikon D3x, 24-70/2.8, ISO 100, Gitzo tripod.

This image is available framed or matte only in the following sizes:
●    8x10 print / 11x14 matte
●  11x14 print / 16x20 matte
●  16x20 print / 20x24 matte
