Long Exposure Photography

ISO 200, f5.6, 85mm, 52sec
10 Stop ND Filter

Photograph Notes:

  • Should have used larger aperture
  • Should have used focus lock before attaching ND Filter
  • Did cover viewfinder so there was no light leakage
  • Used tripod to stabilize camera
  • When decreasing aperture (higher f number) increase shutter speed to 120sec
  • Photo taken at dusk
  • Avoid stepping in Goose poop mines

    Ok – I like the photo as is. Sorry about the goose poop landmines – but anything to get the photo, right? Question: if you increase the aperture AND increase the shutter speed, won’t it be too dark?

      Whoops! I’ve updated it. Nice catch, I meant a smaller aperture (higher f number) and the slowing of the shutter would compensate for the decrease in light the aperture would allow into the lens.
