Compressed Time in Seoul

I went out on a sunny day and took along my welding glass filter and tripod. For the first time I decided to also take a photo of the scene without the filter to show the difference times makes to the exact same place. In the red box are the exposure times I used when taking the photos. There were taken in the center of Seoul, South Korea.

Long exposure in Aruba: Arashi

Arashi beach is the most Northern beach in Aruba. I took my nephews to bodyboard there and I took the opportunity to take some long exposure photos. I am using welding glass which I have explained here on how to use. I was standing in the sand with my tripod and I lost a couple of photos because when a big wave comes in it shifts the sand and moves my tripod and then my image is blurry.

Don’t forget these were all taken during a very bright sunny tropical day.

Random in the lowlands

amsterdam night 1200

Night time exposure in Amsterdam with a view on the Old Church  (oude kerk) during dusk.

200 grach 1200px

Daytime long exposure (one minute plus) of the grachten of Amsterdam. People, boats, anything moving disappeared and turned the water nice and smooth.

Long Exposure at Scheveningen. Not really sure why I left it in color, its tinted and doesn’t really add much to the image. Also the water didn’t smooth out as nicely as I expected. Should have close the aperture more and gone for at least a 4 minute exposure.

Long exposure at the Dam with a view of the Palace. Lots of tourists around and street performers who all slowly turn blurry and invisible.

Long exposure in Aruba

I joined a friend some time ago to Mangel Halto, an spot in Aruba where surprisingly I had never been before. Surprisingly because Aruba is not that big and I’ve lived there for a long time. I brought along my welding glass contraption and took some daytime long exposure photo’s. All of the photo’s were at least 60 seconds of exposure.
