Pictures aside thank you Daylight Savings Time. It’s a real victory being able to chase light and photograph after the long commute home. It changes the game for me as extended weekday shooting is back in the fold.
I had some time to kill before dinner tonight—and in the interest of full disclosure, dinner tonight consisted of pepper steak at the folks’—I quickly hemmed and hawed over the beach or Stafford Forge as I grabbed my gear and loaded the car. Once I remembered we were negotiating evening high tides all along Long Beach Island, I opted for the Forge. Long exposure jetty rock tidal pictures will just have to wait.
Some quick thoughts on the ND filter:
- Set up is more laborious—especially with the care needed in handling the filter so as to be sans prints (fingers)
- Loading in the outer slot and leaving the inner slot empty will cause light leaks
- The filter itself seems to cast a blue hue; not certain if it’s common but the filter’s not as neutral as its name would suggest
- Enjoying the challenge—gonna be a bit before I get something really gripping
