slow start speeds up

26th October 2018, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

The morning started slowly with not much sunrise colour in the sky at all.

Soon a burst of colour underlit the clouds as the rain fell out over the sea...

It was just a patch of sunrise compared to some mornings but it was worth a photo or two...

Heading home and the Skaith is blocked off from the sea just now.

A final look back West to towering rain clouds and a bit of a fiery sunrise...

ICM: Intentional Camera Movement. This technique is growing in popularity and turns a normal photograph of a sunrise into an interpretation of a sunrise (see examples below). It's not for everyone and I only do it now and again. Set up a slow shutter speed and sweep the camera along the horizon as you press the shutter button.

If you're interested the techy stuff, the settings for the normal picture are: f8.0, 1/160th, ISO 200, -0.3 exp comp.

For the ICM picture they were: f8.0, 1/8th, ISO 80 -1.0 exp comp, Using Canon G15's built in ND filter.

Try It!
