    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!

      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?

    11. PeterChinnock 33 months ago | reply


      Yup, its black glass and is approx 11 stops!
