Practice long exposure photography
Water photographs in long exposure have that dream point, unreal and at the same time hypnotizing. The texture of the water is similar to that of the brush of a great painter, in your white canvas film will remain the silky effect. You can see it in the first two photographs and in the following:
The long exposure is not only for water, beyond the silky effect, you can capture spectacular skies or cities of heart attack.
Surely many times you have seen a landscape in black and white and you have been left with your mouth open and wondering how they will have achieved that effect. Well, beyond the composition, the sharpness or the use of depth of field, there is a trick that will give a completely different life to your landscapes, it is about the filters.
Filters in landscape serve both to clarify the light and to bring greater drama. You can use polarizing or color filters. The truth is that about the latter I will tell you that it is much more convenient to apply them with an editor than to carry a lot of different filters for each occasion.
WHY I STOP PHOTOGRAPHING
The “worst picture” is not one in which there has been an exposure error and that ended up going too dark or very burned. The worst picture is not the one that lacks clarity, and in which the subject is not distinguished from the background of what is blurred. That is not the worst photo believe me.
The worst photo is that which photographs but never sees the light.
Unfortunately, and although I’m ashamed to admit it, I’ve had a few like that. Dozens of photos, hundreds, thousands of photos that I have on my computer at this moment, and that I would call “the worst photographs of my life”. What I am going to tell you next is a shameful fact, but I am counting on the hope that others will learn from my mistake. This article is also in a certain way “swimming against the current”, because I will say something that many photographers will deny, I will fall, I know, I can not say what I am going to say, it is not “cool” to tell this, but not it matters It is a photographic lesson that I learned, something late (I recognize), and I would like nothing more in life than to share it with the people who read Blog del Fotógrafo to share the learning.
