Mount Batten (Explored on 14/12/2011)
Hi there, first time in a while going out with the sole intention of getting pictures but I now have some more time after I finished my last bit of coursework last night for my first term of year 2.
Anyway when I first started taking pictures it was all about colour, I liked some pictures in B&W but it was something I was never personally interested in. But I have over the past couple of months been wanting to do more B&W photography, so expect to see more of it. I have been inspired by several different people's work on Flick with their long exposure B&W shots (usually involving water). This was the first real time I had go at making the B&W long exposure effect I was looking for and I am quite pleased with the result for a first attempt.
Finally I was quite impressed that any of my long exposure shots came out sharp and not blurred to be honest because the wind was exceptionally strong (30mph or so with 50mph + gusts). So I tried to act as much as a windblock as possible which did seem to work to an extent :).
Oh and there is a million and one dust spots/dirt, which I think wasn't helped by the weather none the less I have tried to take all them out but I may have missed a couple!
