Uncle Al's Hot Dogs and the Variable ND


If I'm having lunch by myself, I'll frequently read a manual or experiment with some camera feature. So, today I have the Canon EOS 5D MkII with the Singh-Ray Variable 8-stop ND on the lens. With ISO 800 and f2.8 and some significant window light, I can still get down to 1/20 second shutter and create some motion blur.

That takes the hot dogs out of a literal sense into the abstract. Hey, probably as it should be. And, I love the "grain structure" of ISO 800.

P.S. My apologies to non-photogeeks; ND = Neutral Density (a filter that cuts light; this one also retains color fidelity)
