Where is the boat?

Few weeks ago I did a little experiment with long exposure photography. I tested some ND filters and the holder system. Filters were fine but the holder wasn’t. I sent it back to the e-shop and exchanged it for the holder system from Hitech. I tested it again and this time I’m happy with it:). This is one of the shots I managed to create with it. I’ll create a short review of these filters in the near future.

Ride in the Sky

Prater amusement park is another of the well known places in Vienna which many people visit, some just to see it and some to have some fun. I had fun taking pictures there:).

St. Stephen’s Cathedral

I spent the last weekend walking around Vienna. This church is probably one of the most known sights there. This cathedral is nice from the outside and also from the inside.

Charles Bridge

This is my second favourite long exposure photo I took yesterday when experimenting. I usually don’t take these kinds of pictures during daytime but longer exposure makes it a bit more interesting, I guess.

Feathers in the Sky

Posted by on Apr 12, 2014 in Blue Hour, Canon EOS 6D, City Life, Long Exposure, Prague, Spring, Sunset | 0 comments

I’ve admired long exposure pictures ever since I’ve seen the first one:). I did not have the right tools up until now to try it so I was stuck with the maximum of thirty seconds. I finally got some ND filters and went out to try it out. My goal was just to test the equipment and figure out the right technique. I visited two of my favourite places here in Prague and I failed so many times I should’t even write about it:). Nevertheless, I also managed to get some decent shots, this one is the winner of the day.

In case you were interested (not that it matters), I shot this with a 4-stop ND-filter and for the sky I used 2-stop soft graduated filter. The exposure time for this one was six minutes. And by the way, this time the HDR part was in camera, not in post-processing;).

I took these during my recent visit of my hometown. I think in this case the pictures speak for themselves so I’ll let you enjoy them:).
