Default Skies of fury II ---->

Alternative composition to <a href="https://forums.audiworld.com/photo/msgs/47835.phtml">the previous shot</a>.

50D + 24-70 f/2.8L using a cirpol and 0.6 soft GND. 3-exposures blended (manually) then processed in CS3. See flickr for EXIF (click it)

Default Question...

Rob, do you manually blend shots with different shutter speeds as well? Thus, one shot to get the smoother looking water, then others at different shutter speeds?

Default In this example (and the other one like it) ... yes

The baseline exposure for this one was 0.5sec (1.6sec on the other, IIRC). Onto that I subtly blended in a slightly faster exposure for bits of the sky (mostly concentrated on the brightest orange areas just above the horizon) then a longer exposure (2.5sec for this one and 6sec for the other I think) for the water only. The single (baseline) file would have been adequate on its own, but the water fell between smooth and choppy (so would have looked less pleasing) and the sky would have had slightly clipped areas (less cloud definition).

Default Any recommendations on quickly adjusting shutter speed between..

the different shots, so that the scene does not change too much and make blending more difficult? To this point I have just been using AEB which makes it simple because I set that for +2, -2 and can just snap the shots in quick succession with my remote. I appreciate the info.

Default I use AEB as much as possible. Otherwise, I turn the dial as gingerly as possible.

Shooting through remote capture and your PC makes this a simple, hands-off task ... but that's not always feasible (i.e., dragging your laptop to a location and setting it all up on site).

Default Interesting, I have never used the remote capture software yet...

Can you setup multiple shots with completely different settings using the remote capture software and then fire them off in fast succession? Sounds like I need to install the software and take a look at how it works. =) Thanks again Rob!

Default Hmmm ... never tried that.

I'm sure there are apps/programs to do such, given there are time-laps apps that allow you to program them.

I simply take a shot, then change inputs (Av, Tv, whatever, then take another (via my laptop, without touching the body).
