Cornwall Big Stopper Test

Cornwall Big Stopper Test
A recent trip to Cornwall, in particular Boscastle provided me with a chance to test out the Lee Big-Stopper filter which appears to look like glass from a welders face shield. The Big Stopper is marketed as a 10 stop long exposure filter; so with my experience of pinhole photography I was like, ‘Oh go on then’ beach scenes it is. The filter comes with an exposure calculator card, which I found to be out based upon my spot readings, so a little guess work and a few checks of the histogram and I was a happy bunny with my ~25 second exposures during sunny afternoons.
