Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

I took "Slow Betty" out again!

The subject wasn't as nice, but I like the results!

I am loving "Slow Betty" !

I love how it makes the water look still even though it's obviously moving in the first one.

Also, what's the rating on your piece of glass. Mine is a #12.

Mine was a 10, they seem to be in the 10-12 range. Looks like you'll get some lovely super-long shutter speeds :)

My brother in law is going to grab some rubber bands before he leaves work tonight. I'll be testing it out tomorrow probably. It's raining right now so now isn't a good time to try it out anyway.

I found glass rated from Shade 8 all the way up to Shade 10. I bought one of each. $3.99 at Princess Auto. Shade 8 is significantly "brighter" than Shade 12. I could easily make out the lights throughout the store with Shade 8. With Shade 12 I was able to see only the closer (brighter) lights.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

I looked through my 12 and can't see anything unless I point it at direct light.

*Coffee filter exposure to capture correct white balance. then set custom white bal in camera.

I missed that one. What's the Coffee Filter exposure to correct WB? How do you do that?

Here welding glass ( German made ) costs 40 US cents, a spectacle mechanic cut and fitted the glass in a 'cheepo' useless UV filter frame ( 58 mm to fit the 450D) for 80 US cents.
The glass is so dark shot has to be completely manual. The filter came free with the camera.
Yet to be mastered is white balance while shooting in RAW

I wonder how much shipping costs from where you are ;)

OK, I know these aren't much to look at but I think I have the right idea. My first shot before the rain came in. This was in focus but I had the tripod setup on my deck and it may be out of focus because I was moving around a bit. So there may have been vibrating going on.

Shot with my #12 glass at 366 seconds f/11 ISO 800

Maybe if the rain lets up a bit I'll head over to the river and get a shot or 2.

Sun is coming out now. I'll set one up in the grass maybe and try again.
