I am aware that a similar topic has been covered in another thread, but I am looking to do something different =)
Here's the event I want to photograph: the UK Big Freeze in my home town, Reading, UK. This is an event where a group of people stand stock-still for 5 minutes in a public place.
My plan is to mount my camera on a tripod and take a long exposure shot of someone taking part, that way the frozen subject will be clear on the picture, but any other member of the public milling around will be blurred.
This has raised a lot of questions about how to get a long exposure shot in daylight conditions without overblowing the exposure completely. I think that to achieve the right amount of blur I need an exposure of 4 seconds (metered, assuming regular daylight exposure value of 13-14 ). I plan to use Kodak Ektar 100 film - does anyone know what reciprocity failure that has? If anyone has a better film to recommend (I'm going for colour because of the exposure latitude) then please go ahead. What else will I need to do?
