Portfolios: Land & Seascapes: Single Exposure.

Photo for June: Malaysia- The waters were coming in and the tide was rising. There was a constant need to pull my bag to prevent it from getting soaked. The tripod was also sinking into the soft sand now and then and because of that, I had to shoot a lot more than I have to normally. Each time the waves came by, the tripod will vibrate just that tiny bit and ruin the exposure. It was thus a neccesity to try and contain the contrasty scene within a single shot and that is when my neutral density graduated filters play a vital part. I am not a die-hard filter fanatic and will use HDR when the scene allows me to but in this case, chances of shooting for HDR was minute and with the fast fading light, choosing the conventional method worked better.
