Shutter Speed Trial at Bellochantuy
A few images from my Shutter Speed Trial at Bellochantuy where I was testing the images at 0.5 second upto 1 second.
This was a technique that I have never really used before, usually when I do Long Exposure its for minutes at a time, however I didn’t have a filter to fit the Samyang 14mm f2.8 I had on the camera to get longer exposures.
Waiting For The Light
I had to wait for the light to fade to get the exposure times required which was fine, as this also allowed some beautiful colours to come through.
The danger I had here was that with the perspective of the 14mm I had to get up pretty close to the rocks in the images to use them as foreground interest, this meant getting in deeper with the camera and tripod than I am normally comfortable with, especially with the tide coming in and out pretty quickly and the occasional big wave.
I did on a few occasions grab the tripod to lift the camera out of the water when I felt the incoming tide was too big lol.
A previous visit to Bellochantuy I was able to capture this incoming cloud formation that just started to release it’s rain drops as I started to walk back to the car, otherwise I would have been in danger of getting soaked…again!
