Summers Evening

Out with the Camera

So with the British summer finally arriving (well nearly) it’s time for those lovely evening walks round Heath Lake in Petersfield just chilling out and taking photos. So with my D7000 set to Manual Mode, I started out taking shots and trying to practice using my Cokin ND and GD filter sets. Which I’m slowly getting the hang of, however still need more practice 😉

ISO 100, 14mm, 1/25 sec, f/5.6

ISO 100, 14mm, 1/25 sec, f/5.6

The above photograph was taken free hand and not using a tripod due to the brightness of the sky and my current set of ND & GD filters not being that Dark, however looking at the above photo closely the use of a tripod would have made this photograph much sharper along with setting my D7000 between f/9 – f/14 so lesson learnt for next time..

ISO 100, 14mm, 1/20 sec, f/18

ISO 100, 14mm, 1/20 sec, f/18

Continuing our walk around the lake we watch the clouds go by and the sun start to think about setting, with the camera still in hand but this time shooting towards the remaining sunlight I was able to capture the above photography which made a lovely way to end our evening walk.
