In march we've been to the beautiful coast of Lagos in Portugal. There I tried my variable ND-Filter for the first time. Actually since then I used it only twice. I have to admit that I'm often just too lazy to set up my tripod and get the exposure correctly with the filter. But I still wanted to share the results of this first experiment.

Here the same photo in black and white with a slightly different crop. I think that the effect is much more pronounced in the black and white edit.

And here one without filter for comparison.

What a cool selection of shots, I had a variable ND but never was happy with the result si got from it so stopped using it, Long exposures can be fun to play with

Yeah, I was in spain when I bought the filter and the variable one was the only thing I found after searching for some time, so I got it anyway.
But I have to admit, that I'm still taking shots with it by trial-and-error.
Do you have a good method for getting the exposure correctly?

the best filter is the one you can find afford and have with you , they all have pros and cons :)

As for getting the exposure right, the camera is quite good at that when I use aperture priority which I often use, but sometimes its a matter of trial and error

Yeah, I tried using aperture priority but it seems that there is so few light coming in that the camera messes up the exposure calculation. The best method I found was to set it to maual without the filter and then count the f-stops of the filter onto the current setting. From there on I have a at least decent starting point for further trys.

That sounds a real good way of doing it, and if it is working for you stick with it

I dropped my new grad ND filter today and it landed on a small rock and got a big scratch it, the day just went downhill from there LOl, tomorrow will be a better day
