Long Exposure Photography, Old Portsmouth

Out with the Camera

 

So after beating The Beast from The East on Saturday, we head off out on the Sunday to Southsea, and Old Portsmouth, Hampshire to capture some Long Exposure photography.

With LEE filters at the ready, we head off down the A3 to Portsmouth, after driving around Old Portsmouth we manage to find a Free parking space (not that we are tight) we just didn’t have any change, Parking at Southsea \ Old Portsmouth cost approx £3.00 for 2hrs. with parking charges now in place 7days, 12 months a year unlike in the past, so make sure you check the parking meters when visiting this location.

Walking down the seafront we stop off at the pier, before heading off towards the hot walls at Old Portsmouth which is one of my favorite locations from Long Exposure Photography

On arriving at the jetty, we found it to be free of the fisherman who normally flock to this location for a spot of beach fishing.

With our camera’s set up we started to capture the above photographs using both LEE’s 10Stop (Big Stopper) and LEE’s 15Stop (Supper Stopper) ND Filters.

Exposure times before fitting our LEE filters, where reading around 1/125sec + so capturing Long Exposure photos wouldn’t have been possible by just decreasing our F/stops down to f/22

Example filter times, before and after fitting LEE ND filters

Exposure Time 1\30sec, ISO100, f/11 with 10Stop = 30sec

Exposure Time 1\125sec, ISO100, f/11 with 15Stop = 6mins
