Epic Hobart sunset last night…

Wednesday March 5, 2014

Well we sure were treated to an epic Hobart sunset last night weren’t we… Lots of high level cloud and a mostly clear sky had me throwing my gear in the car for a quick drive to Bellerive in anticipation of something special… and boy it was good, check out some short footage (phone camera) below :)

Bellerive is pretty much my default location for a sunset shoot, and co-incidentally, where I hold my sunset photography workshop “Hobart & Surrounds“. I took a series of shots as the colour changed, mostly with my 10 stop B+W neutral density filter, which I present to you below.

7:44pm – I have sorted out my composition, now all I need is some colour… By now I am shooting with the 10 stop ND filter. This exposure was 30 seconds.
