Long Exposure Test

Black And White Photography, David Jensen, Photography


I’m working on preparing an image for submission with the subject being long exposure.  We have several wood pulp plants in the area and I thought they would make for an interesting composition.  Although technically strong, I feel that a little more wind would have created longer steam trails and been more what I wanted to capture.

Canon 5DS, ISO 100, 75mm, f/9.0, 30 sec, twiddled about in Adobe Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro 2.

In the forest after the rain started

Here in Germany we have a saying “Steter Tropfen holen den Stein” (~ constant dripping wears away the stone), but also “der Tropfen, der das Fass zum überlaufen bringt” (~ the drop that makes the barrel overflowing).

Same is, when rain falls on the forest ground. First, the rain will be soaked. The longer the rain lasts, the more water won’t be soaked. Instead, it searches a way to escape. So, the water comes back to skylight at a tiny, but growing, spring.

More of my images can be seen at my own blog.

Off In The Distance

Some days I am more artistic than others. I’ve moved across country this year, I guess this could be some sort of metaphor for that, or else it was just a fun departure from my usual style.

While this is an original composition, I have to admit that I had taken these clouds from a Google image search.
