In this week's chapter about Long Exposure Photography (the last one!), we'll talk about a few things that we have left and were hard to fit in previous posts.Read More
Taking long exposures on film can be trickier than doing it with a digital camera.
Don't be afraid, though! After getting familiar with a couple of gotchas, you'll find the process pretty straightforward.
And I actually like the results much more than the ones I get with digital!
In this week's chapter of the Long Exposure Photography Series we will talk about what's different, the downsides and the advantages of using film for long exposures.Read More
In this new chapter of the Long Exposure Photography series, we are going to talk about what is arguably the most important thing when it comes to making good long exposure images: the subject.
While there are no strict rules in long exposure photography and the results might be unpredictable, we should be aware of a few concepts that are usually true.
After talking a bit about them, I'll be showing you plenty of examples of what you can expect to create with long exposures. These are examples from my own archive and represent only a tiny part of what can be achieved with long exposure photography.
This is, in my opinion, the most creative technique in photography, allowing you to develop your own vision and create very unique imagery.
Practice and dedication are required to get the results we want, though. If you like any of the images you see here, try to get out and create t (or something very similar) by yourself. Then, you can add your own twist to it. This is the only way to learn.Read More
We already know what a long exposure is and why this technique is so awesome. And we know the camera gear and equipment we need. In this week's chapter, we'll talk about how to actually use that gear to take a long exposure.
I'll show you how I take a long exposure with my Sony a6500 step by step. The controls on your camera might have a different name, but the process should be pretty similar. If you have any questions, leave a comment or contact me.Read More
This is the second chapter of a series about Long Exposure Photography. A new post is published every Wednesday.
Camera gear matters. And when it comes to Long Exposure Photography, it matters even more.
Whatever camera we use (it could be a phone or a 8x10 large format camera), we need to be able to control the shutter speed and increase it for extended periods of time.
The greater control you have, the better.
Now, there are still ways to shoot long exposures even if we can't control the shutter speed. We'll talk about those too.Read More
I love long exposure photography. This technique allows me to distort reality, to depart from it, to create something new that doesn't necessarily exist, to find my own voice and offer a unique vision of the world.
I realize this might sound a bit crazy, or at the very least, like I'm exaggerating. Truth is, I'm constantly seeking scenes I can capture on a long exposure.
