While waiting for the first winter storm to arrive I wandered down to the Scripps pier in La Jolla around 7:30 this morning. I wanted to test the Canon 50mm f1.0 lens and the 10 stop neutral density filter. I also used the Canon 15mm fish eye and Sigma 8mm circular lens and the Canon 24-105 zoom lens on the Canon 6D full frame camera. It was a beautiful morning and the ocean was calm with 1 to 2 foot waves and low tide. The beach was already crowded when I arrived and I was fortunate to find a parking spot close to the beach. Long exposures are a problem when the tripod legs are in wet sand because it moves the camera while sinking into the wet sand. I did some focus shifting with the 50mm lens at various apertures from f1.0 to f16.0 and lens blended them in Photoshop CC to compensate for the camera movement during the long 30 second exposure. It created and nice stigmatic effect. I hope you enjoy the images. Let me know what you think of them. Thank you. Lee Peterson November 2014
