Finally off Night shift, was almost in the land of the waking and the sun was actually shining, Yieahy!!! Had already made plans to meet a friend in Dundee for lunch and a bit of shopping, but decided to take…
Dundee Discovery Point – 22.30
Sarah had a major advantage when it came to the boat itself as she has a much wider lens than me (10mm vs 17mm) and could fit the whole ship into one shot. I opted for a shot from the front instead.
I was shooting entirely in manual mode and using my shutter release cable to guess how long the exposures should be. At f11, iso100, they were roughly around the 2 minute mark and I got moderate success with this technique.
I often get asked “how long does my exposure need to be”. The short answer is “as long as it takes”. My time served as a photographer allows my guesstimates to be quite good, but only experience and a little thought process will get good results.
