    You can also if your camera has it do some multi exposures, 10 frames at 30 sec = 300 sec it works for me and my D810 keep the great work up.

    After seeing your video. I would like it if you show the pictures loner and show yourself less. The pics go so fast from the shot that I have to stop the video. That is annoying. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for a solid tutorial. One problem I have when using 10 stop ND was trying to blur a waterfall while keeping the bright sky dark. I guess shooting at mid day is not really possible of a waterfall when there is about 10 percent bright sky in the shot. What would you do here? Crop out the sky and take the photo? Or maybe use a graduated filter? I have a polarizing filter and a 10 stop in my kit only.

    I tried to use use a 10 stop filter during noon at Mt. Rainier about two weeks ago, but was only able to get a maximum of about 8 seconds. I was trying to show the movement of the clouds covering up the mountain, which were very far away, so I actually needed a much longer photo. What I did was set up the camera's timer to 10 seconds followed by 5 continuous photos so that I could combine them in PS using lighten mode into an effective exposure of about 20 seconds. The exposure was still not as long as I was hoping for, but I learned that having a remote shutter release would come in handy. I wish that camera makers would include bulb ramping in their new camera firmware, although I don't think it's always necessary. I lost my tripod somewhere, so the tilting LCD on my camera helped to stabilize the camera on rocks and still get a great composition. You can see my photography @
