Long Exposure and Landscape Photography

My adventure with photography started 8 years ago. Since the beginning, I was genuinely fascinated with long exposure and landscape photography. I really wanted to develop in this area of photography; however, I did my first steps in photography in the era of analog photography.

Ryszard Lomnicki lives in Galway, Ireland, and specializes in long exposure and landscape photography.

A Perspective On Patterns

It was only three years ago that Javan Ng got his hands on his first Nikon DSLR camera whilst living in the Big Apple, New York City. It has been an integral part of him ever since. Every road he walks he carries the feeling that ‘maybe today will be my lucky day and I will take the photo of my life’.

An urban explorer in every right, it is his love for traversing the cities he is in that goes hand in hand with the cityscapes he captures. He marvels at the daily humdrum of the metropolis and has an eye for uncovering patterns in places others may never encounter them. “When I photograph, I want to offer my audience a fresh perspective of the city, by producing images that busy people are unable to see and marvel at everyday.”
