Croyde Reef

By arhb      
One of my objectives for these images, was to get a good idea of exposure, that I could translate over to my MF Bronica film camera.
Once I know I'm in the ballpark with the same iso, aperture and exposure, with the same degree of ND stops, and focal length, I get out the other camera.

Once you have an idea of the long exposure time, for both sun out and sun behind the clouds, you can shoot away.
When I say shoot away, I mean press and hold the shutter release cable, whilst simultaneously starting the stopwatch.

Then, since this was my first time using the P mode on the film camera, that enabled me to use longer exposures than the 8s limit, I had no idea whether it was functioning properly, so I then had to wait till I was home before being able to develop the film and prints.

Suffice to say, most of them came out really well. I'll post some scans of the prints as soon as I get around to it, but for now I'll leave you with this image of the reef at the south end of Croyde beach.

Thanks to Chris(SlowSong), MileJanic and Rob(RLF) for the UA's on yesterdays image, an for the comments made.
