Guys,
i have a 8mm samyang fisheye lens and use it with a D7000.
i would like to do long exposure shots with it but am getting all my pics blown out of the sky (20sec exposures etc). id like to use a gradguated ND filter on this lense to prevent this happening but not sure if possible due to the curve of the glass, is there a way this can be done? if so would someone please help me out
even if theres any other way to avoid the blow out without using a ND filter (like a trick of the trade perhaps )then thats even better
rather not use a filter.
i have tried the cloth trick in font of the lens, but due to the wide angle of the lens im finding it hard to not get my hands etc in the picture
cheers
