Dawlish through the Welding Glass by 


Best Viewed Large.

Another attempt at a long exposure during daylight.

The picture is the result of a 34 second exposure taken about midday.
ISO 200.
f/6.7
WB.White light fluorescent lights.

For the filter, I used a Grade 10 Welding Mask Glass held in place by 2 elastic bands.
The glass was purchased off Ebay for £1:30 inclusive of P+P.
At present, it is a matter of trial and error in finding the best WB, as there tends to be a green cast on the picture.

Thank you for looking and hope you like it.

    WOW Richard. You will have to show me how (I will bring the rubber bands, I have lots of them here LOL) Did you use a Tripod or was this hand-held?
    Looks very much like a silver foil lithograph. Nicely captured ;)

  • Thank you Jay and for the fave also. Very much appreciated my friend.
    Yes, a tripod was used. I dont think I can keep that still for 34 seconds. LOL.

    Well done Richard! That welding glass is working marvellously. Being black and white cures that colour cast situation too!

  • Thank you Colin.
    I might get it right one day. LOL.

    Love the capture – 34 seconds that’s hellofa long time! Very very successfully done tho, love this welding mask idea and rubber bands. Instant fave! S:)x

  • Many thanks Sandra, and for the fave also.
    Very much appreciated. I am happy at how these are turning out, especially at the enormous cost to buy it. LOL.
    Next, I will try it on f/16 for about 3-5 minutes.

    Absolutely fantastic B&W mate, gotta try this now, the results are outstanding and all for £1.30

  • Many thanks Jason. Ideal for B&W as I cant seem to get rid of the green cast. Maybe if I had a new camera though, it might be different. :-))
