Long Exposure AttemptsteemCreated with Sketch.

in habitsofexcellence •  22 days ago

I've vowed to commit a bit more into the hobby of photography. I just want to learn. My composition is absolutely terrible, but I'm attempting to post something each day. Hope you will weather this storm with me haha.

This morning I definitely got my feet wet...both figuratively and actually. It was cold and I found I didn't have gloves that were adequate to stay any longer, but I did stick around to take 7 or so photos. I chose this one to post.

What did I learn? I should have brought the better gloves. I need more interest in this photo and the water was barely moving fast enough for the long exposure to "work" in my opinion. Color...I'd like more...seems difficult at the moment in our landscape. I'll keep working though ;)

Naked trees and winter browns.

I’m with Adé on this - I’ve never done much LE photography at all. I don’t even have an ND filter. Are you doing a 365? I did that in 2013 and it was one of the best creative projects I ever did in terms of growth as a creator.

I don't know that I'm committing to 365, just to be more intentional about taking more photos. If it turns out to be 365...I'd be pleased :)

The best way of doing a 365 is not to commit. Then it becomes a bit like watching a snooker player pot red / black / red / black and not commit to a 147 break ha ha

It is a good first one. Like the photo not that much the tones.. would have edit that part differently

This is one of my photographic weaknesses - long exposure. The other is the use of flash.

Looking forward to your photos :)

Oh don’t even get me started about flash...I don’t even own one haha.

·

Well thanks @sophiajames. I think you are right about the many clothes, haha. Happy New Year to you as well.

Oh nice shot and a big happy new year to you. You taking photos now mean that you are going to enter the photo contest? ;)

·

Oh dude....I'm not sure I'm really worthy to enter the photo contest, haha. I'm really learning. I'm a video guy, but when it comes to photography....I'm a total noob. But if I have something at some point I feel worthy to submit, I'll definitely enter! Thanks for commenting!
