    Re: Post your long exposures here

    July 1st is Canada Day, and you know there is going to be a fireworks show!! While waiting for the show to start on English Bay in Vancouver, British Columbia I decided to make a long exposure to catch all the boats moving around the bay. Someone out there decided to fire off an emergency flare and soon all the boaters were firing them off. Throw in a few jets coming and going from the airport, some onlookers along the shore and the moon for good measure and you have an interesting recipe for a unique image. Image was made with a Linhof 617 using a 17 minute exposure.

    Is 80 seconds considered long around here?

    Yes, what is a "long" exposure?

    My exposures under the redwoods run around 30 seconds to 30 minutes.

    Amazing. I had no idea it bucked like that. As it's been around for what, 50+ years I'm thinking it's safe, yes?

    Hello Bruce,,,


    The movement comes from the built in mechanics of the bridge.. Which makes it a machine in and of it's self I guess

    One of my favorite photographers is Rhienhart Wolf , he is known for his building shots with lens up to 1800mm ... I always thought to myself , I wonder what a 7 hour exposure of that building would look like.. Or a set of buildings

    The Light at Cape Blanco

    Taken from Bandon, 19 miles away, four minute exposure. I cheated a little and added the lens flare effect digitally...

    my Painted Lady... discovered this in an abandoned warehouse facility in the middle of downtown Phoenix. They actually hold "rave" parties here, I found out from the owner, who happened upon us while we were shooting. This is right across the street from the 4th Avenue Jail, made famous by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    Anyway, we were allowed in to photograph what we wanted. This was painted on an HVAC duct. It was very large, maybe 4x5 feet. This was the first time I ever got a "zero" on my light meter for the shadows. I think the highlights were "3". The duct curved away from me so I had to use a small aperture to keep everything in focus, f45 or f64, if I remember correctly. The resulting exposure was 9 minutes.

    I think it turned out pretty good. I actually think it is the actress Annie Corley (Bridges of Madison County)... maybe I'm wrong, though.
