One of the joys of photography is trying new things. Many of us have genres we are drawn to, I know that I do. Mine shift between portraiture and travel and back, for the most part. Occasionally I have the opportunity to experiment and try some different techniques.

I recent led an event at Pike Place Market and along the waterfront. For fun I carried my tripod and some ND filters. We were there a bit before sunset and found ourselves at the water shortly before sunset. I decided to use my 10-stop neutral density filter to really slow down the water.

This is a technique we often use if we want to photograph waterfalls during daylight hours, which I’ve done a time or two, but I honestly had not thought about using it in this scenario.

I only captured a few frames, but this was my fave.

Here are the settings and what I used. Next time you are out creating and want to try something new, this would be something to consider!
