After an exhausting day in school I grabbed my camera bag and my tripod and went outside. Actually I wanted to try my ND-filter to see whether it works, but well.. It didn't and it makes me sad.. So I took my closeup-filter and took a picture of these lovely wild camomiles After that I worked in the ice cream shop and now I'm totally exhausted.
It's already halftime! I did 26 of 52 weeks! Yay, let's celebrate!
Well, if I knew how to use it correctly, it would work.. I tried it yesterday, but all the pictures were way too overexposed (too bright) and the clouds were not blurry or anything, although it was 4 seconds..
4 seconds is not enough to give you noticeable blurring of the clouds, unless it's very windy. My guess is that your filter only gives 3 stops, and what you need is at least 6 stops of light reduction (ND 64x). I would recommend 9 stops for bright daylight.
This chart will tell you how long to set the exposure based on the unfiltered exposure time needed: [link] Hopefully this helps
