It’s quite interesting what two photographers get when the shoot at the same locations. And its even more, if they do almost the same photo at the same time :). And since I went yesterday to Bokod with a second photographer, Pedro Kin, and he already posted his photo, you can check his result and compare. We both took a long exposure photo with similar setting, from almost the same spot at the same time. And in the behind the scenes photo on the sides, you can see both cameras in action. Mine is the one on the right :)
You can check out Pedro’s photo on his site here.
Early morning in Bokod
The fisherman houses in Bokod, Hungary make for a quite interesting view. And there are so many of them in the area, that they do offer a lot of photo opportunities. Regrettably, some of the walkways are blocked by gates, but there are still a lot of them open.
For this photo, we got up at 5:30, to be at the location before sunrise. And while the sunrise was behind us, the better view was before us. So I chosen to do mostly long exposures here, as the few clouds that were in the sky were mowing quite fast, creating these nice streaks here. And I’m really happy with the result.
So for this shot, I used a 10stop ND filter, one from Formatt Hitech. I used the camera build in bulb timer, to get a 4 minute exposure. The exact settings were ISO 100, F5.6 and 240 seconds.
