Long Exposure Photography #1

Long Exposure Photography means that one are exposing the digital sensor/or film for light over several seconds (as well as minutes/hours) and not fractures of seconds as we normally do in “ordinary” photography, so for the image to be called a Long Exposure it have to have at least a second or several seconds long exposure time.  

In this Blog I will update you with my daily long exposure work as well as other photographic work I do on a daily basis, I will try as best as I possibly can to explain what I’m doing, why I’m doing it and how, from visualization to actually photographing the pre-visualization and down to editing. If you are just starting with Long Exposures I hope you will find this helpful as well as inspiring, and if you are a novice or professional I hope you find this site and Blog entertaining as much as inspiring. You are all welcome to interact with me on thhis Blog, in fact I appeal to you to do so. :-)   

 

Many Long Exposure (hereby called: LE) Photographers like to convert their images into Black and White, but my LE’s you'll normally find in Colors. I like to fill my images with the light and colors that actually were at the given time and scene when the picture were taken, I don’t put colors or whatever in if it wasn’t there in the first place. But I can sometimes allow myself to emphasize colors which is already there. I often see myself as a messenger of God’s beautiful creations, I’m just the guy trying to convey this to you, and in the best way I'm possibly able to. And in the process pieces of me and my soul melts into the image too. You can say it’s a form of cooperation.. :-)
