I like the peninsula of snaefellsnes in west of iceland. A raw beauty !
After a visit to kirkjufell and between two snow storms, we discover this waterfall when driving to the west. After a small walk on the ice, i set my tripod along the river and shot this 30 seconds long exposure
Maybe you can call this lucky or sixth sens, but fact is , after searching a resort in Klong prao beach in Koh Chang island,
Sure i want something near »possible » stone or rock but after a small channel we find one resort, good looking and booking it.
But that i discover on private land of this resort at the end of a small peninsula, is incredibly crazy.
After few minutes of walk along the shore, i find an amazing chaos of rock, not often i see jagged rocks in thailand look like shore of Bretagne in france.
I FIND a perfect spot for long exposure photography , haphazardly !!!!
I come back to this spot 3 times (morning and sunset) for doing long exposure photography.
So when you find one spot, stick to it !!! Come back, The light will change, the weather will change, try sunrise, try sunset, result of your photography will vary accordingly.
Here some long exposure photography of the island of Koh Chang Thailand :
Koh Chang is one of my favorite place in Thailand. The third largest island in Thailand. Her name means elephant and is due to it’s shape. Koh Chang is located in east coast of thailand , not far from cambodia border.Inside land, you can eat delicious seafood if you avoid the tourist place.
Walking along the klong prao beach, i pass trough a channel and see three boats along the channel. I want took a long exposure despite i didn’t have my tripod. I put my camera on the edge of the bridge, mounted with my 50 mm canon lens and try a long exposure shoot. I choose a manual setting at 100 ISO , 15 seconds exposure time, use my neutral density filter ND1000.
I want show you some interesting photography i done this last 14 july in Paris, this is our national day in france.
I choose the bridge of Concorde spot which allow me to see in the same frame Eiffel tower and Alexandre III bridge. I arrive three hours before for be sure to reserve a good place and setup my tripod. Tripod is mandatory for shooting long exposure photography of firework and capture ray of light.
