We made it to NANPA in Jacksonville, FL yesterday and got a great room overlooking the great cityscape! Upon opening the sliding door on the 17th floor, I noticed that there were slow moving clouds in very bright overcast. It became immediately apparent that this is a good long exposure situation! It was very bright, so I opted to stack my 5 and 10 stop Singh Ray MorSlo ND filters, giving me 15 stops of ND!
I shot a reference image to get the exposure and shutter speed. I entered the shutter speed into my LongTime app and at ISO100, it read that this was a 16 minute exposure! Being a little pressed for time, I needed to get it down to 4 minutes. So, I raised the ISO to 200 and the exposure time was cut in half to 8 minutes, which was still too long. Raising the ISO to ISO400, the exposure time was cut in half again to 4 minutes, which was my target exposure time.
We look forward to the next few days at the great NANPA summit, and then heading over the see Dr. Singh or Singh Ray filters and then…..if we can swing it….head to the Everglades for a couple of days before starting to head home.
FLASH! After a conversation with Mike Moats, it became clear that I have to blog more often, so I am committed to blogging every day, if possible. So, here’s to a new beginning!
