Look at us through the lens of a welding glass!


Today I decide to try using a welding glass as a filter for some long exposure shots. Obviously it’s not a high quality lens but it does a not to bad job for something designed for welding. It may have been a better with a stronger sun but unfortunately we’re in the middle of never ending snow.

I’m calling this a test run I’ll keep the glass in my camera bag for another go in the future.


The old church is the first picture taken with the welding glass. The light was a bit brighter so it does take a reasonable picture in the right conditions, just a pity the sky was full of grey with no cloud movement.

Below the contraption in action real hi tech stuff. I’ve decided to order an ND filter hopefully be here by the end of next week so I’ll give some more long exposure photography a go soon as possible.
