Long Exposure Love - A New Passion

“The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.”

~Ansel Adams (1902-1984)

I've discovered that I have a passion for long exposure photography. I've been doing a lot of LE experimentation over the past 3 months or so. And having a lot of fun in the process.

I began experimenting when I visited the Lauriston, Upper Coliban and Malmsbury Reservoirs back in September/October. Victoria had some amazing rainfalls this past Spring, and it made for some pretty spectacular viewing around Central Victoria. Trentham and Turpin Falls were a sight to behold, and that's where most of the photographers seemed to head. I went instead to the reservoirs, and they did not disappoint.

Since then, I've been spending time down at Port Melbourne, around Station and Princes Piers - now I know why that area is so popular with photographers. It's a fabulous place to shoot. And a great place to while away a few hours with the camera.

I've been spending a bit of time in Williamstown shooting. At Sanatorium Lake on Mt Macedon. In the city, by the Yarra. Slowly but surely building up my LE portfolio.

I've set up a new Long Exposures Gallery as a home for some of my images. This will be an ongoing gallery that will be added to as I go along.
