I'm a night person myself, but I find it easier just to stay up overnight and then go out, wide awake, than to try to wake up at 4am or something and go out trying to have all your thoughts in line. :)

Amen to that Eric! lol!
I am too. I did not go to sleep until 3am monday/tuesday morning.
I just realized that I have only got ten hours of sleep in the last 48 hours... Fun..... Where did I leave that Vault again? hahaha!

Thanks!

Yup! Have you gotten to the point yet where you realize you forgot to have supper, and then realize you forgot lunch before that, and breakfast before that? :)

And the idea that you can theoretically make money doing this, on top of that much fun.. that's just icing on the cake. :)

Now back to planning my next shoot...

Cool.. no need for sleep anyway.. You'll just lay there planning this all out for 3 hours and then forget it all when you wake up 18 hours from now.

Yes, theoretically.. though I hear there's big money in crane footage.. ;)

Gabriel,

The Hoyas are ok though they may not be neutral and may impart a colour cast to the image. I rec Schneider's B+W...they are what I used for all my lenses (MRC 010 UV) and are superb!

Cheers

Thanks WeeHan!

I was originally looking to get a B+W ND, but I could not find it on B&H. Maybe I was not looking hard enough...

Thanks for the input!

Gabriel,

There you are but you will need step up rings to use the filter on the your 27mm lens.

Cheers

Haha, thats a great one Eric! :)

Thanks WeeHan!

I think I'll check my local camera store to see if they have one for a cheaper price.. Thats a little out of my range.. :( At-least for a filter.

Tomorrow I will give it another shot. This time I plan on being there at 4:30. Ouch thats early....

Thanks again everyone!
