I shot this video between rainstorms while visiting a friend in Cleveland. I used my maximum f-8 aperture but still shot at 1/80 sec., even with a polarizing filter. I don’t particularly care for the choppy waves, so I’d try a neutral density filter in order to slow down the shutter if I did it again.
The other change I’d make would be to shoot on full manual. I like the sun peeking from the clouds and changing the water color, but the clouds get darker every time this happens. I used the aperture priority setting in order to get the longest shutter time possible, but I forgot it could change during the half hour shoot.
Still, I think this video turned out well because of the interesting clouds and light.
