Discover how easy it is to get the results you want

10 steps for the perfect long exposure photograph

Thanks to the spread of high-quality lenses and photographic filters, the long exposure technique has become more and more popular among professional and amateur photographers over the course of the last few years. Even though such a technique could also be used in a photographic studio or within an urban environment, the perfect subject for long exposures is without doubt landscape photography.

Unfortunately, we often obtain results that are far from our expectations, and therefore easily end up classifying long exposure photography as a diabolical technique that is difficult to master. However, by following this step-by-step guide to long exposure photography, you will discover how easy it is to get an excellent result with your first attempt (well, almost!).

1 – Choose the right equipment
2 – Study the weather
3 – Visit the shooting location well in advance
4 – Use a tripod
5 – Compose your shot and lock focus

6 – Expose correctly
7 – Install the ND filter
8 – Select Bulb mode (B)
9 – Take your long exposure shot
10 – Check the histogram again

Landscapes by Marek Biegalski

“I’m commercial, portrait and nature/landscapes photographer. Born in Poland in the early ’70s, I have moved to Ireland in 2006. I’m a self-thought photographer. My work captures sublime moments of light and surrounding, which is a result of meticulous planning and preparation. I’m looking out for patterns within the landscape and the hidden link between reality and the imagination.”

Canada: God’s own land

Helmcken Falls – Yoho National Park

– 8900 kms by airplane
– 8 hours by car in one day to get there
– came across into 3 bears in the rainforest
– 22 shots merged
– 8,6 gb the final edit
– 4 hours postproduction
And last but not least…
– scared by the fact the sky would not have been clear
– only 15 m to shoot before the moon rise
– scared by the thought the 3 bears where somewhere around me hoping they would not be approching to close to me!
This has been one of the most intense and powerfull experience in my life! I was in this amazing place (Helmcken Falls – Canada) that is one of the darkest place in the world! (in a scale from 1 to 15 is considered to be 1 – pure darkness)
Hope that something of the emotions of that amazing night would come even to you 🙂

Bulb Mode

Long exposure photos captured in Bulb Mode (30 seconds or more)

As Hamnoy sleeps… by Andy Fowlie
What brought this image to my attention immediately was the sharpness of the huts in the foreground. This scene is very moody and the huts contrast the image nicely as well as add depth. Also excellent use of Bulb Mode. This is exactly what I was looking for in the brief. Very well done on a wonderful image.
