Product Description

I was enthralled with long exposure photography long before I took up the practice myself. There’s something about seeing movement represented in a still image that I’ve always found compelling. In everyday life, we observe stillness in more or less the same way we do in a photo. Movement, however, is represented differently in photography than we see it in everyday life, and long exposure photography allows us to explore and study movement in a unique, abstract way.

In the months after I purchased my first DSLR, I quickly realized there was more to taking a long exposure photograph than simply setting the exposure and tripping the shutter. Sure you can stop down to f/22, and turn your ISO to 100, but unless it’s really, really dark, you’re going to have a hard time reaching shutter speeds long enough to achieve a great deal of movement represented in your photo. Plus, many lenses don’t yield their best image quality at very small apertures. After a few frustrating attempts, and a whole lot of online research, I purchased my first six-stop neutral density filter before a trip to California a few years back. There was a bit of a learning curve, but by the end of the trip I got comfortable enough (and lucky enough) to capture the photo at the very top of the page, which shows a motorcycle whizzing through Joshua Tree National Park in bright moonlight. I’ve been hooked ever since.
