Primordial Soup – Bullard’s Beach, OR – 2008
I consider this my best image from the Bandon, Oregon trip. It’s a 30 second exposure of the ocean and a swirling pool caught on the beach. When using long exposures, you have to try a variety to get that exact right look.
This was taken using my Canon 1Ds Mark III and using my Vari-ND 8 stop filter along with a stacked Mor-Slow 5 stop ND filter. These 13 stops of Neutral Density (ND) allow me to shoot at 30 seconds under the brightest conditions. There are many challenges however, including holding the camera still for that long and people walking into your image.
