This was more an experiment stacking a circular polarizer and a neutral density filter for long exposures, I would like to have in that moment a graduated filter to balance the sky, too. With film I would need a light meter to don’t waste the film, or experiment but with the issue of need to pay and try to remember what I did wrong. But that’s something that I want to share better in another post.

Actually this photo had a severe underexposure so I took a bit more (photos) correcting the time, but in the computer I liked the vignetting due to stack filters and the mood for the lack of exposure. I just converted to black and white and cropped et voilà, it was ready the food, I mean the photograph, lol.

Ilo Harbour

La Mar Azul

I worked a pair of summers in Ilo city. I am originally from the highlands (12 000 feet above the sea level) but I’ve the attraction of the Sea. And my ancestors have felt it too for thousands of years. The sunsets from the harbour are fantastic, so when I had the chance to pass near Ilo I took a taxi to there… But I wasn’t familiar with the climate, those sunsets are just in summer, the rest of the year the sky has an overcast condition: ouch!

Anyway, there is beauty in everything so I took, stubbornly, photographs in the harbour.

The next photograph was made with a Haida ND1000 filter. It helps to take long exposures, if your camera says that the time of exposition is 1/1000 of second then with the filter you multiply by 1000 so your exposure last 1 second. In this case the exposition was half a minute. But that is just miscellaneous; I wanted to create a quieter mood…

I was very late to my sunset, late for several months indeed, lol. A few photographs more and to take a bus to travel again. I’ve nice memories from Ilo.
