Long Exposure

Published March 18th, 2012

People often ask about this and although I'm still not that great at it I've posted a bit about my understanding of it on the blog at http://zainkapasiphotography.blogspot.co.uk/ Hope it's of some use to the folk out there.

The Bass Rock

Went out to the coast at 5am hoping for a decent sunrise that didn't really amount to much. Also forgot my filter holder so was very pissed off. Ended up ditching the wide angle and played around with the 70-200mm instead. Pretty happy with the results.

Dunbar Cement Works

Went out to the coast at 5am hoping for a decent sunrise that didn't really amount to much. Also forgot my filter holder so was very pissed off. Ended up ditching the wide angle and played around with the 70-200mm instead. Pretty happy with the results.

Kilchurn Castle

From Wikipedia...

Kilchurn Castle is a ruined 15th century structure on the northeastern end of Loch Awe, in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.

It was the ancestral home of the Campbells of Glen Orchy, who later became the Earls of Breadalbane also known as the Breadalbane family branch, of the Clan Campbell. The earliest construction on the castle was the towerhouse and Laich Hall (looks onto Loch Awe). Today, its picturesque setting and romantic state of decay make it one of the most photographed structures in Scotland.

Loch Awe Railway

This is the railway bridge that runs into Loch Awe at the north east side of the Loch. It was a fantastically still day and 15C mid November! Mental.

The Forth Bridge

There was a surprise snow fall this morning so headed out to the Bridges to see if we could get some winter shots. Alas, no snow down at sea level.

Directionless

This is the sea wall at St Monans in Fife, Scotland. Seems a bit of a pointless structure that doesn't really know where it's going.

Kinghorn Sunrise

A 3 minute exposure of the shore at Kinghorn in Fife back in April this year. Very pleased with the results.

Aberdour Pier

The remains of Aberdour Pier in Fife, Scotland. Long exposure for this shot (of course!).

Portobello Sunrise

Let me tell you something really annoying. Our street is the first street outside the S4 parking zone in Edinburgh i.e. it's free to park on. That means that it gets totally abused. The people in the S4 street next to us use our street instead of paying for a permit on theirs (where there is always tons of space) and during the week, city workers use it like a damn park-n-ride. I'm not allowed a permit for the adjacent street so I have to either struggle for a space on my street or use a paid section on the adjacent road. This paid area is free outside of the hours 0830 - 1730. The problem with this is that if I am parked in the paid area after 1730 then I have to move the car the following morning before 0830 and fight for a space on my own street.

This sucks.

So when you have a day off an alternative is to go off for an early morning shoot and then hope there is a space when you get back.

Today I went off to Portobello as it was high tide and I was hoping for a good sunrise. Alas, a rubbish cloud bank hovered on the horizon preventing any real colour in the sky. Filters and some post processing helped a bit but best of all, a space right outside the flat had opened up when I got back home.
