If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I am fascinated by long exposure photography and in particular landscapes with rivers, lakes or oceans captured over a longer than normal time. I’ve had this series brewing in my mind for a long time, but only over the last 6 months or so I was able to crystalize my ideas and actually put a title to the whole thing, as well as choose the images I want to show as a series. This is probably the most difficult thing you run into when you do a lot of photography. Because you love photography you tend to photograph a lot of things, but actually forming meaningful ideas is not an easy process. My friend David DuChemin usually talks a lot about this in his blog and if you’re struggling with this process there is a lot of helpful information in his books.
The photograph above is a recent addition to my long exposure series and will be one of the images I will be showcasing tonight (October 22nd, 7pm) at Slidefest, a quarterly event organized by the good people at Gulf Photo Plus. It should be a great evening of photography and best of all, it’s free! If you do come, don’t be shy about saying hello. All the photographers presenting are very happy to answer questions.
