You’re at the scene, camera set up, exposure time determined and you push the shutter button
Now you wait …
& look at that; even mooore wait
light is perfect with the purples and pinks and oranges in the sky.
You need the exposure to be on point.
But the exposure time is long. It’s so long. It’s crazy long. 20 minutes gose by easy...
I might have been over exaggerating a bit, a sliiight tad bit... but it’s OK.
The drama was intentional.
I understand the wait time. Heck, I love the wait time.
It’s part of what makes landscape photography so darn enjoyable.
The joy, the bliss, the zen moments.
So what should photographers do when waiting for a long exposure to finish? Here are some quick tips
Body / mind
Part of what makes landscape photography good is mindset you put in.
Freedom:It’s relaxing as heck.
But maybe consider the body part of the equation. For example, as a karate student, I enjoy doing Katas as I wait for the shutter to close. I get my mental and physical workout at the same time.
Make their day, and feel good as an amazing child. ;)
Get others in
Step & turn back from your camera and take a behind look. Maybe not for immediate sharing on social media, but people love seeing behind the scenes photos tooo ;)
Slow Life Down by Long Exposure ;)
Long exposure photography takes time, planning, and patience in waiting for the right conditions to develop...
The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.-Dorothea Lange
“If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough.” “Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” “The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.” “You don't take a photograph, you make IT -Robert Capa
