Welding glass filter.

This is a before and after of a 30 second exposure.

The before is the awful colour cast which comes with the filter. I have then set the camera to custom white balance for the after photo. You can see the difference immediately!

    Strange, I don't see any differences... ^^ I thought you had ND filter.

    Love the perspective. Got to go to Eastbourne or Brighton again to get some shots of the piers.

    Just dialed in a custom white balance on board the camera and it takes care of it for you!
    Surprisingly effective!
  • StevanFane 5y

    There we go fella!

    Thats for Canon mind you, although i'm sure its possible for other brands! Its pretty handy!

    I tried that but it didn't do a whole lot of difference. Increasing the tint to maximum in post processing brings the colors back to somewhat normal.

    Thanks for the link. I recently bought a piece of welding glass but haven't had the opportunity to try it yet.

    I had to google "welding glass filter" to see what you are using... so basically it's really dark glass, I wonder what is the ND rating equivalent, something like -20 stops?

    Yup, its black glass and is approx 11 stops!
