I often be asked to review my raw images.
It’ll may help for whom has just started this style of photos, “fine art black and white long exposure”,so here you go.
This is the very raw file from my most recent BW fine art work “Falling down” (I love the movie Falling Down, not related the image though.)
And here is the no-long exposure shot from the same composition. Just before the long exposures one.
Clouds are pretty dramatic, aren’t they?
And this is another shot, slightly changed the composition, I took after the first long exposure shot.
This was also 300 seconds long exposure shot. The light condition was pretty similar but you can see the expression of the clouds is slightly different.
I preferred the dynamism of motion of clouds which the previous image had.
some may think 300 seconds long exposure make the sky look similarly smooth. Sometime it wolud be pretty same, others wouldn’t.
Each of all the 300 seconds has different expressions of the sky.
Clouds are not a cotton candy, you can never find the same cloud again. Then here is one tip for you and me:
Don’t miss the best clouds!!
(along with the best light)
p.s Actually I missed many times though….
