Tonight was the perfect night to head down to Huntington Beach to capture the surf.
The wind was blowing around 15 mph out of the NE. Tonight's waves were around 3-4ft coming into the beach. Tomorrow, in Port Clinton, it is supposed to be blowing 30 mph out of the N-NE. This is estimated to form approximately 8-10ft waves.
I took my Canon EOS 70D, Tamron 10-24 mm SP Lens, along with a Neutral Density filter to allow for longer shutter speeds to blur the waves. To compensate for the longer shutter speeds, I brought along my Manfrotto Tripod, and cable release. The addition of those two pieces of equipment allow for crisp details on the stationary objects and blurring of moving ones.
I was able to achieve exposure times of 2 to 8 minutes shooting at F/29-F/34. The shortest exposure time in the batch was 1/8th of a second (with no ND Filter) and the longest was 4 minutes (with 10 Stop ND filter).
