Well eventually had a chance to take the 5D out for a spin and popped down to Dun Laoghaire during civil twilight. I have been fascinated by some images recently that use a method known as “painting with time” by choosing very long exposures. This is the first attempt at this although with only a 2stop ND it wasn’t exactly what I was after. I used an ISO of 50 and pushed the Aperture up to f/20, which I wasn’t too happy about, but still only managed an 8 second exposure. My new set of ND’s arrive next week so I will definitely be giving this another try.
