Up on the north Brittany coast at Le Diben scouting locations for night time or Pinhole shots, so no kit bag just the D750 and 20mm f2.8 to keep me company. Now I had promised myself there would be no faffing or photo jiggery pokery, just some straight shots to see if the location would fit in to how I see this project going.........anyway.... I stood there, and it was a wee bit wafty and breezy and I could see the clouds were scudding along at a rate of knots....so I started thinking..always dangerous.
So this (or these, as I have done a few) is standing still, trying to keep the framing as still as possible,camera on manual 1/1600 at f6.3 iso 200 and taking a shot every 10 seconds or so. Now truth be told I was thinking of aligning these as layers in Photoshop so any movement would be negated...but.. I opened them as a layer stack from Lightroom into Photoshop, selected the top 9 of the 10 image layer stack and changed the blend mode to LIGHTEN...and that's that....I think this technique has some legs in torch lit portraits(!!!!????) ...more later... anyways a bit of detail from the image to show you it close up
This image doesn't give you a feel for the scale of the rocky outcrops here but it's all on a grand scale and down in the harbour there was some broken concrete mussel pens that look a dead cert for a bit of torch wafting....laters..
