    there really isn't a method for complete daylight, you'd wanna wait until dusk because then the colours will come out reaaaally nice and will be around daylight levels in the end :) great shots man!

    Went to the forest to test my new cam:

    Didn't have my tripod so long exposures are understandably blurry. Also, does anyone also know any good methods of long exposures during daylight. Set my aperture to f22 and ISO to 100 and at 2 seconds in the shade it was still coming out wayyyy too bright.
    Please tell me this new cam isn't your first prosumer/dslr, else I'm going to be depressed, those are great pictures

    Don't bother thumbing them parket, saves time having to click them all to see them properly.
    Lovely shots though.

    Wow it's been a long time since I posted a photo. Well here's one of my final pieces I used for my concentration for studio art.


    Light Driving by John Gramza, on Flickr

    I love the reflection off of the hood of the car and how the sunset just slightly light up the sky.

    Any thoughts?

    Buy yourself an ND filter.

    any advice for strength? I'm looking at 30 seconds to a minute exposure times

    Well you could set your shutter speed to 30 seconds and see how many stops you are below normal exposure, you'll still need to close your aperture a bit but not as extreme as going to f/16 or higher. ND/8 is 3 stops less light, which is about the same as going from 1/1000 to 1/320.

    The really good strong ND filters are fairly expensive. That will cut out 10 stops of light.

    A cheaper option would be to get a welding glass filter and use that as a 10-14 stop ND filter. They do cast a stong green colour, that shouldn't be too hard to fix if you are shooting raw. Flickr has a great group dedicated to these filters.

    B+W are way overpriced anyway. 60 for a UV filter which does fuck all (have you ever seen comparisons, there's literally no difference and the only point of a UV filter is to protect the front element of your lens) when you can get the same from a 6 one. I've seen plenty of ND filters for less than 50 which are at least ND/32.

    Really? Comparing UV filters to ND filter? Plus, where have I advocated for UV filters?

    ND/32 would only cut out 5 stops of light, not nearly enough for daytime long exposures not captured in shade. The B+W example I used, which is a 10 stop, is $110. 50 pounds ($80) isn't really that much less. I don't use that filter, I just listed as a good example. What I use is $20 variable ND filter I bought off Ebay.

    Fluorescent Lamp is my favorite of the bunch. I like the color that you set the picture with.

    I feel like shooting with a view camera has helped me.

    I brought up uv filters because they are overpriced from B+W, you're paying for the branding when you buy their filters.

    i've heard a story of this small square hole in the middle of a road that has a plant growing in it, plant stays short because cars drive over it every day, I wanna get a photo of it with a car ontop or coming towards it (in appearance, of course), not sure how i'm gonna pull that off just yet

    Trying out something new for inspiration, a series of pictures with a specific theme/subject. It's actually pretty fun to do. Makes you think about backgrounds, recurring elements and all that jibble jabble











    Don't know why the processing got mixed results though, maybe the chemicals are going bad. Ah well, I kind of like it

    Originally went out to take pictures of the neat clouds since hugeass storms are coming in. Got caught up with a quick panorama that really turns out as just a wide angle shot.

    Really, don't bother with the watermarks unless you're releasing sample shots for a client or something.

    They're easy enough to remove in Photoshop (if anyone has any motivation to do it) and even pretty subtle ones like yours are slightly distracting.

    I'm new though, so what do I know.
