Coastal Sunset Shoot In this chapter you’ll learn how Karl captured a coastal seascape using various filters. Comments January 25, 2018 Log in to Reply ravikanth viswanadha awesome shots no words to describe and thanks for your class on low shutter January 25, 2018 Log in to Reply Justin Holding Hi Karl, nice video, thanks. I was just wondering if you had ever used any reverse grad filters before ? several manufacturers such as Nisi or Formatt Hitech make them now. I think I might invest because they seem to be perfect for sunsets when the Sun is low on the horizon. Also I find that diffraction creeps in at apertures like f16-18 on my 6D I try not to go smaller than f11. Is this something that you fix in post production? Cheers January 29, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Justin, you can’t fix diffraction in post production as it has affected the actual recorded pixels and reduced physical sharpness and contrast. Reverse grads can be a useful tool but I’ve only ever used normal grads January 30, 2018 Log in to Reply Justin Holding Hi Karl and thanks for your reply. I asked this because I was surprised at some of the settings you used in the coastal videos. (F18, 20 etc). February 1, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Justin, understood but i’ve not had any problematic issues with diffraction on the Canon at those apertures although I’d say f20 is probably pushing it a bit.

March 10, 2018 Log in to Reply Charles Christ Hello Loved the coastal shots and with such long exposures to create the smooth milky look of the water. When you press the shutter button are you using the timer to release it to prevent any camera movement? March 12, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Charles, no I press the button carefully. Generally speaking if your exposure time is in the seconds then the brief moment of pushing the button will have little effect on the exposure. The biggest problem for me usually comes from the sea or waves moving my tripod during the exposure. March 15, 2018 Log in to Reply Daniel Udale First video since joining and really enjoyed it! Thanks Karl 🙂 April 9, 2018 Log in to Reply Kevin Atwell Hi Karl, Thank you, this was great. I picked up on a lot that I thought I knew but did not. Have a great week.

May 13, 2018 Log in to Reply Luca D'Addezio Hi Karl, question for you: why you prefer very close aperture over an ap. of about F9/11 which usually gives a better overall sharpness? Isn’t lens best sharpness point around that range? thanks and congrats. May 16, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Luca, I need the depth of field to ensure the objects and distance are covered. Also with good lenses I’ve never had any issues shooting at f16 and even f22. August 19, 2018 Log in to Reply Keith Higgott Hi Karl, Great video and fantastic images at the end. I’m curious, what lens did you use? I currently have the Canon17-40mm f4 wide angle lens on my 6d but find it isn’t that sharp. I was thinking of getting a 24-70mm f2.8 instead. Would this be wide enough for this sort of shoot or would a 16-35mm be better? Thanks. August 21, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Keith, I prefer the 16-35 cheers Karl.
