Rialto Twilight by LAlight Rialto Twilight by LAlight
A wonderful end-of-the-year trip to Rialto Beach was definitely the highlight of this latest trip to Washington! Though the color was not especially vibrant, it made for a nice, peaceful end to the evening. :)

This is stunning!!  I love how your signature element in each waterscape photograph has a very large body balancing out the audiences focus from the water to the earth. Fantastic. You're inspirational.

this is one of the best coastal shots I have ever seen on deviantART. The motion in everything you shoot really makes you feel as if your standing right there. How many seconds exposure do you use? If you dont mind me asking?

LAlight Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013  Professional Photographer
:blush: Oh my goodness, thank you Michael! :) That really made my day!
This particular exposure was 1/2 second. But to keep the motion it really depends on how fast the water is moving, honestly, and what kind of patterns are available (like in my swirl shot). I just try different things and see what turns out!

a half second? really? Wow that water must of been moving fast! I am just starting to play with long exposure shots. I am self taught in photography, so I am always willing to learn! I always seem to get nothing but a bright white screen when shooting, then about 500 pics later I actually get a shot! I am thinking I should read up on it, but I am stubborn and like to figure things out for myself! HAHAH

The swirl, I just can't believe it's so crisp and it really plays a great part in the different focal points! I am just in awe!

Haha! Yeah, I just figured things out on my own and by talking to people on here. I'm stubborn like that too!

So when you take long exposures, do you use any filters?

:iconxloversrevenge:
xLoversRevenge Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2013  Professional Photographer
Nope, no filters. I have a 35mm 14MP FuliFilm Digital Camera and I am STILL learning about it all. All different sorts of settings for film. But as far as using any filters, nothing when I shoot. I have different "film" options though. Color, B&W and Chrome, so more often then not I am bouncing between color and chrome seeing what's going to have the most contrast. Everyone thinks I have this super mad expensive camera and I don't. It's just all about how you shoot, when and where of course. What about you? What do you shoot with? Any filters?

I'm on my third DSLR in six years. I drowned my first one, but I just got to a point with my last one that I felt it could no longer do everything I wanted it to do in terms of flash sync speed (I do portraits as well) and I wasn't happy with the ISO - it only went down to 200. I have always shot with a Sony, and am now shooting with the A77.

Using filters for landscapes and long exposures of water is pretty much crucial to getting what you want out of the shot. I highly suggest a neutral density filter so that you can expose long enough without having to waste time on those white-out shots. Sometimes, if it's dark enough, it's possible to shoot without one, but more often than not, even on a cloudy day, the ambient light from the cloud cover makes it necessary to have a filter.

But, I agree...you can do pretty much whatever you want with your imagination and how you shoot. A lot of us, and I'm guilty as well, get really caught up in having the right equipment sometimes and forget to "see" what's in front of us. I'm trying desperately to break myself out of that rut as we speak!

Listen, some of my best shots have been on those kodak disposable throw away cameras. I shit you not. Got my first pic of ligntning on it, got my first photography contest win in my town on one, got some of my best shots ever on them damn things before I had this cam. So trust me when I say it's not the equipment! It's so great to have the next best camera and interchanging lenses, and the whole nine, but imho, your only paying for advertising. Get the best tripod you possibly can, but dont go spending thousands on cameras. Mine was $165.00 at Wal-Mart, it was top of the line as far as they had, but in the photography world, that aint much. MP's yes, the larger the better but in all reality, I couldnt tell a 14MP like I have from a 16MP, but you can tell a 14MP from a 5MP, so if you're going to pay for anything pay for a good cam w high MP, everything else is up to you as a photographer! I just have a great tripod and a prayer and that's all I shoot with. I cant tell you how many ppl ask me what kind of cam I have and then when they find out they think I am pulling their chain. It's quite funny!

Third in 6 years aint bad at all and that's a great camera, I have a few friends that shoot with that! A wee bit fancier, but that would explain the amazing shots you get so, Id say that cam is deff worth the $$ spent on it for sure!

That would explain why I always get a ton of white out shots! and the shots that I do get w/out a filter are on dark moonless nights or stormy skies. Wow, shows you that I have a TON to learn yet, but thats what I love about it. Im sure I can go read the manual, but I am stubborn. I like the fight, I like the surprises. Photography is beautiful in that way! So "Neutral Density" I will deff use that next time, that is if and when I can figure it out! Ok I lied I may have to cheat and look that one up!! Sorry for the long reply!!

Let me know if you plan on buying one; I can help suggest some good ones. My advice though, right off the bat, is don't go cheap. You do get what you pay for with filters!
