Bennachie 30.08

Only an hour from car park to summit, despite stopping to prat around with new neutral density filters for camera. I'll see if any worth posting when i get home.

Some good pics there, Duncan.

The ND filters - are they graduated or full?

Duncan said...

They're full (ND2 and an ND4). I should have got the gradiated version instead. But it allows me to play around with skies at sunset.

The ones from the summit are filterless. The ones of the fort are at ISO 1600 and wide aperture. I'll post details of what's what when I get the chance.

Nice pictures - the sky looks very imposing. Any other tips on taking good pictures in these sorts of light conditions? I don't seem to have the knack!

I'm new to it too, TOG.

I take lots of pics on lots of different settings and then chose the best. I tend to use the Av (aperture priority) setting.

The earlier shots with the neutral density filters picked out the clouds, but left the ground in darkness, producing a silhouette, effect - hopefully.

The photos from the top were taken using a tripod and the self-timer, to remove camera shake as they were on longer exposures.

The 'brighter' shots were taken with the widest aperture setting (eg f/5 or f/3.5 and an ISO of 800).
