Sweet! inspiration awaits!

excellent. Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen. Including the bug that landed on my subject in one of my challenge entries. Alright...I didn't plan that.

OK, I get the minimum part and I should be rejoicing, but I'm a little concerned about the long exposure - "longer than usual." Any ideas? I do use longer than usual exposures because I have IS, and when that won't do I use a tripod. Or is there some consensus that longer than say 1/60 is longer than usual?

Example...night scenes turned to day.....movement blur of a runner...etc!

Right. Sort of. This is going to be like the overexposure....?

I wonder if anyone is doing a New York skyline tonight?

Okay. Sort of. I didn't mean exactly like overexposure, but like it in the sense that the longer exposure is used to DO something, to make an effect you don't ordinarily get, except rarely on purpose, as in smardaz's example. So a wider set of visual wonders than in overexposure.

Here are a couple of long exposures from during a wedding ceremony...just to show an extreme example, where it isn't necessary to have the long, beautiful, night beach scenes...apply this method to every day things.

Both these images were taken by my Assistant at the weddings...and there is something about them that I really like.

And what's more...apart from the Watermark....these are done in Minimal Editing rules.

For every picture I've taken at less than 1/250th of a second, I've probably snapped 10 at longer than a second. I love to live at the slow end.

Thank you all for posting the links and all the photos. Now that I have a better grasp, I would like to do some swearing, especially after looking at DrAchoo's cornucopia, and reading his comments. Haven't really tried this sort of thing much since film days - partly the limitations of my digicam, but mostly frustration with setting things up properly.

But really thank you.

YES! - I was wondering when we's have a "special challenge". Minimal - a nice twist.
09/12/2008 03:15:10 AM · #19
Didn't I see a special rules flag that said the good Doc couldn't enter this one? :)
09/12/2008 03:35:21 AM · #20
thank you guys/gals for the tips i,m sure i can pull something out of the hat/camera?

This is great! Now I just have to find my tripod...

I hope everyone looks at the editing rules carefully...No crop, no fancy sharpen, etc. As I recall, these editing rules even tripped up a certain site council individual with a load of ribbons...
09/12/2008 06:53:43 AM · #22
And no RAW files allowed! Only JPEG!

I hope you don't let your teacher down!

I was reading the minimal editing rules and it says you can sharpen but not with USM. Is smart sharpen allowed?
