Information on his presentation:

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

Join us on a virtual journey across the Southern Ocean. Traveling aboard Quark's Ocean Endeavor, we'll visit the bottom of the planet - the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, the Antarctic Peninsula, and then south crossing the Antarctic Circle. As we cruise along we'll stop at some of the most amazing natural history locations on the planet! We'll get a first-hand view of King Penguins as far as the eye can see, hunting orcas and leopard seals, and soaring Wandering Albatross. This once-in-a-lifetime adventure did not disappoint.
