Another Daytime Long Exposure combination with Still images. This image was specifically hard to create as there was a lot of activities in the water that I wanted to convey yet still have the timeless and elegant feel of a long exposure. So as you can see, its not the classical black and white long exposure image.
To make the ‘surfers’ work with the concept of the image I had to show the motion of the waves in the water, doing a long exposure would have eliminated detail in the waves that was relevant to the composition. So instead of working with 10 or 13 f-stop ND Filters, I was working with 3 or 6 F-stops to get the blurriness of the kites and the waves. Additionally, I wanted to keep some colour in the image as each kite was so bright and colourful it would have been a shame to show any evidence of that.
