Venice, Blurred II

Another experiment, this time a second take similar to the previous post. Taken during the last weekend of Carnival in Venice, Italy. Field Notes With my Lee filter system mounted and Big Stopper attached, I held the shutter open manually while blindly trying to frame what was ahead of me. It …

Venice, Blurred

This week, we have another of these experimental blurred/camera movement images. This time from a perhaps more recognisable place. This was taken during the last Carnival weekend in February from the side of a Vaporetto heading back to Piazza San Marco from San Giorgio Maggiore. Field Notes With my Lee filter system …

Amsterdam, the Ij

A little experiment begins. I’ve been playing with camera movement and long exposures for the last little while. Mostly because of this unintentionally blurred image I’m sharing with you today. I know this is not unique, and that there are several really good examples of intentional camera movement photographs, but …

The Pink Flamingos Artis, the Amsterdam Zoo

Something a little different this week. Weeks ago in a cold winter day, I had the idea of making a long exposure of the flamingos at the Artis, the wonderful zoo in Amsterdam. I had hoped that most of them would be standing still and sleeping, and I got lucky, as …

Sunrise Photoshoot in Venice at Piazza San Marco

You have to be crazier than the rest of the people in Venice in order to get the best shots, which means getting up even earlier than what most people think is already an early time to wakeup. Waking up at 5am to capture the early morning scenes in Venice has …

Amsterdam, Veer Distelweg Long Exposure

Just before 2014 came to an end, I travelled to Amsterdam Noord and made this long exposure of the Veer Distelweg ferry stop. The weather was terrible and I did not manage to capture a log of cloud movement, but I am pleased how this turned out. I decided to process it in …

What Would it be Like to See The Milky Way over Amsterdam?

Maybe it would be something like this. The stars of the Milky Way over the river Amstel in Amsterdam, could perhaps look this way if they could be seen. Inspiration sometimes comes from places where you least expect it. Often it is already there just waiting to be discovered. Which …

Amsterdam Wesport long exposure

For the last few days, I’ve been participating in the 5 days of Black and White challenge over on Facebook.  As such I’ve been looking through my archives for suitable images to use in the challenge. Which brings me to this image. Taken a while back, it’s been sitting pretty …

OVO – The Amsterdam Light Festival

Took a chance this past Saturday, and walked up the Amstel river in Amsterdam, to take a look at the Boulevard of Light, an exhibit that is part of this years Amsterdam Light Festival. This is OVO, by far the best of the installations along the Amstel. Worth a visit, with shows …
