Half Term - Portland Bill

February 19, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

 

Two days in a row I managed to get out!  That has to be a record.

After the previous day's trip to Kimmeridge Bay, I was hoping for better weather this time.  My first ever shoot with my 40D some 4 years ago was at Portland Bill and I know my photography has come on since then.  There is so much of interest there, I could come back a number of times and always have something new to shoot.  

Fortunately the weather was as good as I could have hoped for.  It would have been impossible without my ND Grad filters and in one case a blended exposure was required. 

I think this has to be one of my favourite shoots ever.  I've been through a stage of blurring the life out of everything in sight and I've come out of the other side.  The Lee Big Stopper is a fantastic filter but I think it has its place.  My aim for this shoot was to go back to the 1-2sec exposure range.  Helped by my camera's ISO of 50 and a 3-stop filter, I was able to achieve my goal.

Also, I'm finding my way now with the Nik Color Efex Pro 4 & SIlver Efex Pro 2 plugins for Aperture.  I have them in my workflow and am starting to get the look I'm after.
