Where is the boat?

Posted by on May 5, 2014 in Black-and-white, Canon EOS 6D, Long Exposure, Prague, Spring | 0 comments

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.

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 have a simple photo of the Zizkov Tower I took last weekend. The colours in the sky were quite nice, weren’t they?

Misty Morning

I spent the last weekend in a cottage near Cesky Krumlov. I woke up the first morning, went out and I saw this. I headed back inside to get my camera and this is the result.

Lonely Boat

Posted by on Aug 23, 2011 in Canon EOS 60D, HDR, Scotland, Travel | 0 comments

This boat was floating on a loch on the Isle of Lewis. It looked so abandoned and the water surface was so calm I had to take a photo of it.
