Behind The Lens

Location
I shot this from the shores of East Boston - I have a few spots in the area that I like.
Time
Sunset. From East Boston, it's the better choice over sunrise, and I wanted to get some color in the sky for this long exposure.
Lighting
Once the sun dips below the skyline, some of the harsh light is diffused but the clouds reflect some nice colors.
Equipment
For this shot I used a Canon EOS-M mirrorless camera with the 18-55mm kit lens and a Hoya 8-stop ND filter.
Inspiration
A few local Boston photographers have inspired me to keep experimenting with and exploring long exposures.
Editing
When this was taken, I only did rudimentary post processing with iPhoto on my MacBook to balance tones and adjust color.
In my camera bag
My setup has changed since this photo - I now use a Canon 6D, but I still bring my old EOS-M with me because I never know when the small, compact body will come in handy! I also keep a couple primes in my bag at all times - a 24mm and an 85mm are my go-to lenses.
Feedback
Neutral Density filters and a tripod are two key tools. If you can use a graduated ND filter, even better - the sky tends to be a lot brighter than any potential foreground, so using a GND allows you to better balance the exposure between the bright sky and darker foregrounds.
