Daytime Long Exposure Photography (Instructional)
This is an introduction to daytime long exposure (DLE) photography by New England-based fine art photographer Jürgen Lobert.
DLE photography records 1-15 minutes of time in a 2-dimensional photograph by using neutral density filters. This creates unique and intriguing images of the world that we usually freeze in momentary exposures. Letting time pass during exposure converts clouds into bands across the sky, smooths waters to a mirror finish and can make people and moving objects disappear. The resulting imagery is otherworldly and strangely beautiful.
The following topics are covered:
• Why, where and when to do DLE • Equipment
o Cameras, accessories
o ND filters and holders
• Exposing for DLE, expose to the right, RGB histogram • Tips & Tricks
o Composing and focusing o High ISO preview
o Avoiding light leaks
• Types of DLE
o Single exposure
o Stacking exposures
o Creating ghosts
• Post-processing considerations • Resources
