I bought an ND Filter, the darker end of the latter, so that I could start working towards mastering the art of long exposure. I am not sure what kind of investment that is yet. Time will tell.
My biggest issue…I mean, besides not being able to get the hang of long exposure, is that I can’t seem to remember to take that thing back off of my lens. That is always a treat when your brain is working a little slower. You know those moments when you know something is wrong, yet you can’t figure out what it is. I was having a seriously hard time figuring out what is going on with my ability to take pictures. Then like five minutes later I would remember the ND filter was still on my lens.
I should probably still question that at times. My ability to take pictures. I do question that at times and whether or not I should continue on the photography path. I’ve reached moments more often than not lately where I’m at my wits ends and ready to give it up. Then…something will happen. Something that renews me for a minute. Someone will tell me how much they like my photography and inquire about services or I am looking for a picture to post and I find one that I really like. It renews my hope and assurance that I’m traveling on the right path….if even just for a little bit.
