I spent a few hours in Central Park the other day.. Played a little with timelapse and tried out some other things(see 'Central Park timelapse'). I wanted to experiment with long exposures by using a neutral density filter.I have a variable neutral density filter I use mostly for video. It is good enough for video, but not so good for photography. The filter I'm talking about is the Genus ND Fader Filter, much cheaper than the Vari ND filter from Singh-Ray. Now I know why! These filters are supposed to darken, and lower the exposure, allowing you to use longer exposure times. The cheaper Genus Filter doesn't give you an even exposure throughout the frame at least when you go down to -8 stops or so. It almost works more like a graduated filter. Here is a pano I shot using the Fader Filter.
I am looking forward to photographing a beach using long exposures. Let 's see what happens!
Hope you like the image I created. Thanks!
