    You're a genius. I'm going out this week to get a welding glass.

    That is such a cool idea, I rather think I'm going to steal... er... make use of it! cool shot!

    Great idea -- love the innovation and the result. Gotta get me a little welding glass now. There's that waterfall down the road that I'm eager to try this on.

    Very creative usage to get the effect of a ND filter! Though not optically superior, definitely solves the purpose here :)

    Very nice. Where is the best place to pick up some welding glass?

    Which welding glass did you use? I used a 11 grade welprotext (made in germany) glass to shoot the solar eclipse but it was a disaster and finally had to switch to xray films. The welding glass just spoils the shot.
  • Kevin Longwill 5y

    ^ It was a grade 10, bought from a eBay seller called darkmullen or similar. Works for me!
  • Shawn Moreton 5y

    wicked. i'm inspired.
  • Vanessa Gordon 5y

    reeeally good idea!
  • Julius Cesar Garcia 5y

    Very nice shot. May i know what's the custom white balance you used in this shot? I'm gonna try this welding glass filter. Happy shooting always.

    I got my welding glass off of Amazon. It gives it a strong green tint. I tried custom WB to no avail. The glass was super cheap (~$10) so it was worth it. But, just FYI, some welding glass is better than others in terms of tint.
