Hong Kong in sprockets

I brought my sprocket rocket along to Hong Kong packed with some Fuji Superia 200 film. Took it out for day time and night time pics. I normally count about 2 to 3 seconds when taking a long exposure at night. Negative film is pretty forgiving. Some of the photos were underexposed due to my flash not firing ( have since fixed that issue).

The famous view from Victoria’s peak. We didn’t take the tram but the bus instead which gives you a nice view of the other side of Hong Kong. It takes a bit longer but the line waiting for the tram was huge so maybe time wise there isn’t that much of a difference.

Underexposed shot. It’s darker between the tall building than I expected hence the underexposure.

Amsterdam–Seoul Double Exposure

I had a 10 hours layover in Amsterdam on my way to Seoul and took the chance for some double exposures. I made sure to take all my photos in landscape orientation and underexposed by 1 stop. My Canon EOS SLR 500 auto rolls the film and always puts it at the end of the roll so the frames always match up, this is not always in the case in other cameras. I tried to combine high contrast images with local text and landmarks.

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.

scheveningen small 2

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.

 

200 secs 1200px

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.

Minimalistic sunset over Scheveningen Pier which is for sale for 1 euro. (the pier not the photo).

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.

Netherlands in Film Sprockets

Long exposure on the sprocket. I normally expose for about 8 seconds. Negative film is pretty forgiving, so a couple of seconds more or less doesn’t make a major difference.

The famous Kinderdijk outside of Rotterdam. Nice place to see windmills. Easily accessible with the waterbus and a bike.
