We'll be spending the day in Kimmeridge
experimenting with long
exposures (milky water) using neutral density
I recommend a "10-stopper" ND filter,
and with a bit of research you should find one to
fit your budget, although that said I'd avoid
buying from the cheaper end of the market as they
often come with a horrible colour
cast. Also, avoid purchasing a "variable ND filter". I've seen several cheaper versions of these are they are useless.
Intermediate - but all levels of abilities welcome.
We'll be taking the short walk down to the beach
from the car park - once there it's moderately
flat and easy going.
Please visit the events page.
1pm through to sunset.
Kimmeridge Bay - We'll meet for lunch at Corfe
Castle and spend a little bit of time
photographing there before heading to Kimmeridge
for the best of the afternoon / evening light.
This event will be limited to 10 people.
