Behind The Lens

Location
Cocoa Beach Pier, FL.
Time
8am
Lighting
Sunrise was a bit lackluster so I decided to do some long exposure with ND filters.
Equipment
Sony A7II 16-35 Vario Tessar Lee Big Stopper Manfrotto Tripod
Inspiration
After seing all the amazing daytime long exposure shots being shared on social media I had to give it a shot.
Editing
Blended multiple exposures to extend the dynamic range and pull out the detail of the pier along with some dodge and burning.
In my camera bag
Sony A7ii, sony 16-35mm f4 vario tessar, rokinon 14mm f2.8, Batteries, shutter triggers, air rocket, microfiber lens cloth, flashlight, lee filters including the 100mm circular polarizer, big and little stopper along with foundation kit.
Feedback
Keep those nd filters on hand because the opportunity might arise when you least expect it.
