Over the last three or four years I’ve been working on a series of daytime long exposure photographs with the help of using ND filters (Neutral Density) ranging in different strengths. In some cases even stacking multiple ND filter’s together to achieve longer exposure times specifically to use during broad daylight.

These images I shot on the Capilano river in North Vancouver as tests using my Nikon D3 digital slr. I took these in the very beginning of my experimentation using ND filters as I was learning how to slow my exposure times down beyond that of the slowest shutter speed /aperture combinations cameras offer. This was mainly so I could achieve motion blur for moving subject matter over a long period of time during daylight. Read more
