I was excited to try out a small new accessory and so I took off and went to Somerset, Orchard Gateway to take some shots. Everyone is kinda crazy about the 10 stop filter. I was hooked as well because of the effects it gave me. I just had to give it a try. After waiting for a few days (which felt like weeks – is it me or does anyone else have this kind of feeling as well?) I received it through courier. I would want to thank my dear wife for helping me collect it and for supporting me in my passion for photography.
Here is the only shot I took with this 10 stopper which was very very affordable.
Tip: Please do not attach the 10 stopper to your camera when there is little or no light. Yes, I was silly to do it but, the results were great according to my feeling. 10 stoppers are used more for moving clouds and rushing waters in the bright day light, not the wee hours of the dark night. Unless you have patience and don’t mind waiting for the shot and for your camera to process it. I really had to wait at least about 10 minutes before my camera would “talk” to me again. I almost wanted to switch it off, thinking that it might have hung. Thank God it was okay.
Only the first shot was taken with the 10 stopper. Others were more of street shots.
Taken with the Fujifilm XT 1, 18mm lens, JPEG only.
I still have a soft spot for black and white. So this is a shot just for that. Ghastly but still an image worth capturing. Let’s stay forever 21 🙂
