Trying Out Long Exposure

Before and after the weekly meeting of the local go club at Pub Konttori at six pm, I took some photos.


ƒ/6.3 24.0 mm 0.5 800

I tweaked this a little in editing. The half second exposure time was pushing it particularly because it was windy out there. But I think the photo turned out okay after all. What you're looking at is Lake Pyhäjärvi shot from the highest point of Pispala Ridge. The view is to the southwest.


ƒ/6.3 38.0 mm 1/10 3200

Onwards to the pub where glasses of cold beer and games of go await!


ƒ/6.3 18.0 mm 0.6 800

A most welcoming sight.


ƒ/7.1 18.0 mm 13 100

A long exposure with the camera resting on a rail. Why does the sign that say "H Liljeroos" look shaken while the others are fine? Perhaps the sign is a little funny and doesn't just look like that.


ƒ/7.1 48.0 mm 13 100

Another long exposure. The surface of the stream pool really looked like that because it was partly frozen over. That is not an artifact of the long exposure time.


ƒ/6.3 23.0 mm 0.6 3200

I really need that stand.


Hi markku. When you say stand you mean a tripod? The pictures look great and I think your hobby has taken on more levels these days as you are trying out new techniques.

Yes, camera stand. That's a more generic term than tripod. A large Gorillapod is another possibility. Granted, it's got three legs as well but you can bend them and its potential uses are different as you can wrap the legs around objects.

Your photos have a lot of depth and details!! You are becoming an artist!!

Great job. I love your photos. Long exposure combined with night shots. Lovely. Also on the computer, some of the effects are lost. I love prints of photos.
