Weekly Photo Journal Challenge


The Photo Journal is where we will feature fun, interesting, or beautiful photos each week. Whoever has the most interesting or different photo each week will be featured on the site and praised like the amazing photo genius you are.

Week 22

This photo was sent to us by Michael.  I’m not sure where he is from but it’s safe to say there is a waterfall nearby.  In his email he mentioned that this is his “first good photo with a 10 stop ND (neutral density) filter.  Great photo! If that is you in the photo kudos for running your butt from your camera all the way up to that waterfall in just over 30 seconds.  The hardest part of long exposure is calculating the exact time to keep the shutter open for the proper exposure.  There are a ton of things that can alter the exposure (clouds moving in front of the sun or away, your own shadow, etc.).  Not sure where you learned to us the ND but for those of you that are curious check out my article on long exposure photography.
