For this shot we were able to make the most of the sun­rise, which ma­te­ri­alised de­spite the pretty un­promis­ing fore­cast! Com­pared to our first shot the light was quite a bit brighter, so Jayne rec­om­mended that I at­tach my six-stop neu­tral den­sity (ND) fil­ter to re­duce the amount of light reach­ing the sen­sor, and so en­able me to shoot a longer ex­po­sure at f/10. In the end this gave me a shut­ter speed of 0.8 sec, which pro­vided the per­fect bal­ance be­tween mo­tion blur and de­tail. I also had to at­tach a two-stop ND grad to darken the sky slightly. On Jayne’s ad­vice, I shot wide, and low to the ground, to fill the frame with the beach, and to use the sweep of the re­ced­ing waves to lead the eye to­wards the sun­rise.
