I for this:

1. Compose the shot as normal.

2. Focus in auto-focus mode, then switch the lens to manual focus. This will prevent the camera from trying to auto-focus once the filter is on.
3. If using a GND filter, position it as per normal.

4. Take a meter reading and/or test shot. Take note of the shutter speed, and multiple by 1000. Remember this value.

5. Screw on the 10-stop filter. (If using a GND filter, take this off first, then put it back on after)

6. Switch the camera to Manual mode and set it to the shutter speed from step 4. If more than 30 seconds, use Bulb mode.
7. Take the shot.
