Zeiss FE 24-70 F2.8 Zoom set at 35mm with Heliopan variable ND .3-1.8 filter set at 1.8
Study of motion and beach lifestyle in Manhattan Beach
I used a Gitzo traveler tripod to steady the camera and the ND filter to enable a four second exposure at F20. This enabled me to juxtapose the peace and inspiration some feel at the pier with the frenetic activity that is always a part of beach life.
This is a very unusual day in Southern California as we had clouds instead of our usual flat grey marine layer. This added texture to the sky which punctuates the juxtaposition of peace and frenetic activity captured with the four second shutter speed.
