Silky waters

La Jolla Cove, La Jollla, Neutral Density Filter, San Diego, Silky Water

A picture of La Jolla cove from children’s pool beach. Since the sun was still out and it was bright no matter how low I bumped my ISO and how small I set my aperture I couldn’t get the shutter slow enough to smooth out the water. I had to use my variable neutral density filter (which acts like a pair of sunglasses) to get the silky waters effect. In essence, the filter blocks the amount of light the sensor sees and the the shutter will remain open for a longer period to allow for a correct exposure; and this will get you the silky water effect 🙂
