Long Exposure Photography
with Vanguard Professional Uros Podlogar
Long exposure photography produces stunning photos. It imparts a feeling of movement and mystique in photos. No special or expensive photo gear is needed for long exposure photography. It is a demanding, although not the most demanding type of photography. The crucial thing is to think about the shot and to prepare well.
The most important advice I can give to achieve long exposure photography is ensure you have stability. And my second and third pieces of advice: stability and stability. Even the slightest vibration can ruin the whole photo.
I cannot imagine long exposure photography without Vanguard's tripods. Lately I am most excited about the new VEO 265CB carbon fiber travel tripod; I take it along everywhere since it is so lightweight, compact, and very stable.
To achieve the effect of misty water during the day, I use a 10 stop neutral density filter because I want the shutter to be open for several seconds. If you do not wish to use a filter, then you need to practice long exposure photography at dusk or dawn. Or in caves.
