Chroma Noir, the makers of popular iOS camera app Halide Camera, have created a new AI-powered app designed specifically for shooting long exposures. Called Spectre, the app uses AI to analyse a scene and computational photography to create a long exposure effect.
Long exposures are a lot of fun to shoot and experiment with. Although they can take some time to create (they are long exposures, after all), you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get until it’s finally over and the shutter closes. But they’re a lot easier to shoot than most people think. In this video, Pierre Lambert breaks down the process into simple steps.
With long exposure photography, you create unusual, surreal worlds in your photos. UK-based photographer Tim Gamble specializes in long exposure light photography and makes breath-taking artwork. One of his photos really caught our eye, so we wanted to hear more about how it was taken. We chatted with Tim about the photo he titled Love is a Burning Thing, and he shared with DIYP some details on how it was created.
One of the most frequently asked questions I get is how I shoot long-exposure photos from the cockpit and how they end up sharp, despite flying at roughly 950kmh / 500kts through the air. I will try to answer that question in more detail, going through the process and challenges step by step. Hopefully it sheds some light (pun intended) on the techniques I use and for the pilot-photographers among us some valuable and easy-to-use tips for your next night-flight.
Whether shooting at night or in the daytime with neutral density filters, shooting long exposures isn’t always as straightforward as it might seem. There’s movement to consider, as well as various camera settings that might hinder your experience. But photographer Gordon Laing is here to take away all your troubles in this very extensive guide to long exposure photography.
The likes of B+W and Lee have pretty much dominated the strong neutral density filter market for the last few years. Both of their 10 stop NDs are excellent, and then Lee upped the game with their 15 stop Super Stopper. Now, Irix is expanding their new line of Edge filters with a 15 stop ND3200 screw-on neutral density filter.
There’s something soothing and beautiful in long exposure photos. If you’d like to start making wonderful long exposure images of your own and get it right, Andy Mumford has plenty of great tips for you. In this video, he shares lots of useful advice: from the essential gear you’ll need, to camera settings and composition tips.
Have you ever heard of a reverse graduated neutral density filter?
If not, this is a specialty filter designed to balance the lighting conditions between foreground and background at sunrise or sunset – when the sun (and therefore brightest part of the image) is at the horizon.
You’re not going to use this filter on a regular basis – but when you do need one, you’re going to be very happy that you packed it!
Here is a way to easily take long exposure images with the Apps that come with your iPhone.
Apple’s iPhone has become one of the most used cameras in the world and, over the years. They have added some very cool features to their camera and photos applications on the phone.
Normally, their camera features are very well advertised and they market them very well, but with the latest realise of iOS 11, they seem to have buried the lead as far as I am concerned.
Did you know that if you have a iPhone 6s/6+ and up you can now take “long exposure” photos with your phone? Probably not I’m guessing because Apple seems to have buried the feature pretty deep.
So here is how to do it.
