Before you read this post, just scroll down to the image and figure out what time of day it was taken!………Ok, now read on!
I have a passion for photography. That passion drives me to challenge myself and learn more and more every day. I’m not satisfied with ‘good’ I really want great! But just like playing a musical instrument you will never improve your photography unless you practice.
So yesterday I took myself and my camera and some newly acquired filters out for a walk, and I tried something I have never tried before; taking slow shutter speed filters in bright daylight. Normally there is only so much a camera can do, and it struggles with bright sunlight and going slow, but with the help of the filters to block out some of the light I was able to experiment.
I found a place on the river Rhine near Arnhem and armed with tripod and filters created this image.
Taken at 11am with sunlight streaming through the clouds I was still able to slow the movement of the river water as it lapped the bank. I’m really pleased with this image from my first ever attempt at this. Its something new for me and I look forward to more exploration and experimenting and sharing the results with you.
