Old Watermill

Out with the Camera

Lovely spring day, had the day off work so thought I would get out practicing taking more photos.

So mountain bike out, camera kit all packed and off I went. I hadn’t been cycling for long when I came across this lovely old watermill just outside of Petersfield in Hampshire.

Using Shutter Speed Priority to help slow down the movement of the water, and then converting to black-white using Adobe Lightroom when I got home, I managed to achieve the above image.

The day was also spent taking time to practice using both ND and GD Cokin filters, using these filters together can help slow down your camera speed on bright sunny days, and also help capture any cloud cover there maybe

When using both Neutral Density and Gradual Density filters together, you need to take care. As doubling up filters can create an unwanted purple tint on occasions.
