Energy - Film Long Exposure by Cameron-Jung Energy - Film Long Exposure by Cameron-Jung
Makes me wanna go do it some more....

**resubmitting with correct colour profile (i hope)

Long exposure on Film, Tamborine Mountain.

- Olympus OM-1n
- 100ASA FujiFilm
- F4 Aperture
- 28mm Focal Length
- 22 minutes (+/- 1 min) Exposure time
- 1AM AEST approx.

Little bit of reciprocity failure and colour shift but im not complaining. I love how this turned out.

** the colouring in this picture is, to the best of my knowledge, caused by a number of factors - firstly, film has a tenancy to produce some odd results when it is exposed for more than a couple of seconds, caused by a failure in the film's colour responsive chemicals. The red colour is a dominant colour in our galaxy, which can be seen stretching diagonally across the image. The blue is of course an over saturation of the night sky (not by me - in my experience fuji film is weighted pretty heavily to blues and greens making it awesome for tropical images), and the yellow i believe is light pollution from a nearby city. One thing i love (and often hate) about long exposure photography, particularly at night, is that it shows a lot of things which cannot be seen by the naked eye. this kind of colouration is a perfect example :D

If this is wrong, correct me please.

Energy - Film Long Exposure by ~onesadlittleboy Now generally as a rule of thumb, I don't like shots that have telephone pole's in them much, by any means, however when Drew suggested this to me, I about had my mouth drop open on the floor. Besides the fact it is shot in a 22 minute long exposure on film, it just has a really unique look and feel about it...almost an odd statement about technology...if one can say. Truly a very skilled shot! ( Suggested by DrewHopper and Featured by kkart )

Hi! This shot is AMAZING! If you don't mind me asking, how did you know how long to expose for? I tried reading back through the comments, but couldn't find anything. Sorry to bother! The colours in this are amazing! You might be interested in Hitoshi Nomura's work – he does a lot of astrophotography on film as well!

Hi shinellie. To answer your question i guessed, but it was an educated guess. Whenever you add a stop of light to your aperture you basically double the exposure time. Same goes for ISO. If you halve the ISO you double the exposure time. I had a bit of prior experience with long exposures before this, and guessed that 20 minutes at f8 would do it. I was actually a bit off, but thankfully i could post process on the computer to slightly enhance my highlights and darken the rest to get to the final result. On a bright sunny day a few fractions of a second can mean a perfectly exposed image or a horrendous over exposure, but when available light is much lower you can be out by minutes and it still turn out ok. For example one stop of light over or under doesn't usually ruin a photo, but on a long exposure like this, it could be the difference between a 10 and 20 minute exposure and anything in between could  have yielded an acceptable image. I hope this answers your question :)

Hi there :) I set up an old film camera on a tripod on a clear night and left the shutter open for about 20 mins. Once i was finished i made a few tweaks in PS.

Do you have as much trouble getting good focus as I do at night?

Cameron-Jung Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Hi there. For this sort of thing focus was pretty easy. All i had to do was set the focus manually at near infinity since i was using a wide angle lens and there wasn't anything in the foreground, but if you do need help with your autofocus it helps to carry a decent torch with you. Most decent flash units also have a focusing aid installed too if you are working with autofocus in the dark which doesn't need a light at all, though this wont be suitable for wide landscapes.

You just use bulb mode and the shutter will stay open as long as you want it to. My camera wont go longer than 30 seconds automatically either :)
