    and lower the F number I usually don t do much of that myself though If your photos are coming out too dark just bump up the EV until you are satisfied The shutter speeds will be quite long when using the IR filter depending on how sensitive your camera is to IR Setting The White Balance for Infrared Photography After taking some photographs with your filter you may have realized that your pictures are completely RED In order to fix this just meter and set the White Balance with your filter on Google How to set white balance with YOUR CAMERA MODEL for instructions if you don t know how to do this already HOWEVER a lot of cameras cannot set extreme infrared white balances in camera If you can t get your camera to work just shoot in RAW and set the WB later in post processing with a program called UFRAW This method should work with any camera UFRAW is way better than Adobe Camera RAW because it can set the white balance for infrared photography which A C R can t properly do Editing IR Photos in Photoshop The popular look for infrared photography have a blue sky instead of brown Image on the left is before the red blue channel swap image on the right is after it It s quiet easy to obtain this look In Photoshop go to Image Adjustments Channel Mixer Make sure the Output channel is selected on Red inside of the dropdown box Type in 0 for red and 100 for blue Next select the Blue output channel but selecting it in the drop down box Type in 100 for Red and 0 for Blue You ve just swapped all the red colors for all the blue ones Feel free to experiment with other channel swapping variations I ve seen pink and yellow foliage before If your foliage in your pictures look too red ish and you want them pure white like snow you can easily desaturate them using Image Adjustments Hue Saturation Select Red Alt 3 and then slide the saturation slider all the way down to 100 I would also recommend darkening the levels a little bit The 2 examples above was not adjusted for that and it looks a bit faded IR Examples Chart Keep in mind that this was a cloudy day If it was a pure blue sky the sky in the IR photos would look much darker Editing Infrared RAW Photos in Adobe Camera RAW If you want to set the white balance using Adobe products you can download the DNG Profile Editor and then watch this video tutorial describing how it is done But like I said before I recommend using UFRaw instead of Adobe products Using Two Infrared Filters May Get Better Results I have access to two Hoya R72 filters I stacked them on top of each other and used both of them on my lens simultaneously The results seem to

    have your camera on MANUAL mode and have a set white balance This will make all your images have the same settings There are probably tons of how to guides on the internet and youtube explaining this Also it s a very good idea to use a tripod but isn t required Once you have taken your images you can use Photoshop to stitch your images File Automate Photomerge or Hugin I like using Hugin because it has maximum control on what you want your final pano to look like It is also better at stitching images that were not overlapped as much Photoshop CS4 sometimes has a hard time doing that If you are just getting started in panoramas and have Photoshop I would recommend using that for the first few you do because it is simple to use compared to Hugin Once you feel ready to step it up though by all means embrace Hugin Here is a video tutorial which includes a tutorial on how to take close up macro panoramas Tweet Tagged as 360 cameras cs4 hugin images larger megapixels pano panorama panoramic photographer resolution wide angle 1 Comment Newer Entries Recommendations Entries Wineglass Splash Studio Photography Tutorial My Photography Best of 2013 Photography Masterclass is Now Online High Speed Powder Photography Tutorial Glowing Lines Photoshop Tutorial Open Source DSLR Announced D800o April Fools Multiple Exposure Photography Tutorial My Photography Best of 2012 Hybrid Image Optical Illusion Photoshop Tutorial Snow Photography and Special Effects DSLR Tutorial DSLR Basics Stops and Metering A Room Filled with an Obnoxious Amount of Money My Photography Best of 2011 Trick Photography and Special Effects 2 0 Now Online High Speed Photography with Splashes Flashes and a Fish Tank Photography Tutorial Photoshop CS5 Surreal Portrait Photo Manipulation Advanced Tutorial Orbs Long

    ND400 filter I d recommend this one or even an Infrared filter Taking long exposures during the day is useful for creating foggy ghostly seascapes blurring clouds blurring water and waterfalls and even removing people from a scene if they are constantly moving Long exposures are excellent for moving ocean waters splashing against rocks The longer exposure the more misty the water will looks A lot of people use an ND400 Filter for long exposures during the day It allows 30 second exposure times Long exposures of waterfalls create that smooth soothing effect Silver Falls Oregon This looks blue and white because it was taken with an Infrared Filter attached to my camera lens Manual blend of 2 exposures 20 seconds for the water and 5 seconds for the sky The long exposure is made possible by the use of a ND400 filter Star Trails These are a great challenge and the best part is you don t know what the photograph will look like until after you ve taken it You will need to have your camera on a tripod manually focus to infinite use the widest aperture you can and a low ISO If you want to take 20 minute long exposure you will need to buy a cable release made for your specific DSLR However taking super long exposures can cause a lot of noise in images An alternative wave to doing star trails is to take a bunch of 30 second exposures and then overlap all the images on your computer using a program called Startrails There is a minor drawback to this method for every 30 seconds of an exposed photo there is a 1 2 second time period where the camera isn t taking an exposure This makes it so there are little tiny spots not visible in your star trail It is a very minor drawback but ultimately it is a better method because there isn t as much noise 20 minute exposure at F 3 5 ISO 200 or 400 Other Fun Long Exposures A creative use for the ND filter would be to take a picture of a watch or clock In this 4 minute long exposure you can see each second hand as it moves around the clock These eyes were constantly moving while the camera took a 1 5 second exposure No Photoshop This was a one second exposure Half of the exposure the eye was open then after 5 seconds the eye was shut What you see is the eye both open and closed at the same time This is a long exposure at night time of snow falling The snow was illuminated with a light and a tree is in the background 3 seconds This is an example of Solargraphy Solargraphy is the process of taking long exposures with pinhole cameras that last several MONTHS to record the light of the sun This is a 6 month exposure taken by solarigrafia on Flickr There are also other

    a 1 2 second time period where the camera isn t taking an exposure This makes it so there are little tiny spots not visible in your star trail It is a very minor drawback but ultimately it is a better method because there isn t as much noise 20 minute exposure at F 3 5 ISO 200 or 400 Other Fun Long Exposures A creative use for the ND filter would be to take a picture of a watch or clock In this 4 minute long exposure you can see each second hand as it moves around the clock These eyes were constantly moving while the camera took a 1 5 second exposure No Photoshop This was a one second exposure Half of the exposure the eye was open then after 5 seconds the eye was shut What you see is the eye both open and closed at the same time This is a long exposure at night time of snow falling The snow was illuminated with a light and a tree is in the background 3 seconds This is an example of Solargraphy Solargraphy is the process of taking long exposures with pinhole cameras that last several MONTHS to record the light of the sun This is a 6 month exposure taken by solarigrafia on Flickr There are also other things you can do with long exposure photography Long exposures during the day allow water and clouds to blur leafs on a tree will also blur if there is wind In addition you can also take a long exposure in a very crowded city where lots of people are walking and completely make the crowd invisible by taking a long exposure during that day You can also use a long exposure and then fire multiple flashes to light your subject in different ways and or to multiply them in number You can also spin your camera to take perfect straight blurred out lines or you can zoom in and out with your lens while the exposure is taking place Long exposures also come in handy during lightning simply take a long exposure and wait for the lightning to show up The challenge create a long exposure that has all of the above Light painting light spraying star trails and lightning all in one photograph Okay I realize it would be hard to get lightning but try to include them all if you can Because long exposure photography is such a large topic there is only so much I can write in a blog post If you want to know more information on lights techniques and effects check out my Trick Photography and Special Effects eBook It has over 60 pages of content solely dedicated to light painting techniques and long exposure effects Tweet Tagged as B W examples experimental ir LED light light painting lights list long exposure nd400 night photography pictures star trails waterfall 27 Comments 8 Sep 09 0 How to Take Long Exposures for Night

    processing Star Trails with Illuminated Foregrounds You can also use a flashlight portable speedlights car lights or a fire to illuminate a foreground object You can even illuminate entire landscapes at a distance if you have a powerful enough flashlight the LED Lenser X21 monster flashlight is my light of choice for doing this The first example below was illuminated by city lights just to the side of the hill and the second example was probably illuminated by a flashlight Star Trails with the North Star in the Center of the Frame In order to get the donut hole effect simply locate the North Star or just point your camera North Remember that stars rotate slower near the North Star so you will need to have your camera out a long time to get a good shot You can place your foreground objects right in front of the North Star This will have the stars circulate around your chosen object which is great for composition Parabola Star Trails It is the complete opposite if you point your camera away from the North Star The stars will go by very fast so you will get longer strokes in a shorter amount of time This was 130 30 second exposures combined using Startrails de If you have any other tricks send me a comment and an example so I can feature it in this article Happy shooting In order to prevent your lens from fogging up you can try wrapping up some hand warmers around your lens with a rubber band or get a miniature fan to constantly blow wind onto your lens This is tutorial blog post is just an excerpt from my Trick Photography and Special Effects E Book If you enjoyed this post consider getting the e book All the content you see here has been revised plus new content has been added Tweet Tagged as how to howto landscape photography long exposure night

light is extremely easy and fun Simply wait until night time put your camera on a tripod and set your exposure for long periods of time these are usually 5 seconds 5minutes your aperture and ISO I usually use f4 at iso 200 or 400 but these settings need to be determined differently according to each situation Then DRAW There are many different light toys that create different effects Things that have been used before include sparklers glow sticks flashlights maglights fire torches RGB strips Christmas lights illuminated cell phones iPods laser pens and of course any kind of LED Scribble with laser pen In this example the laser pen was stroked up and down the models face 1 sec f 3 5 ISO 200 City lights from a far away distance The camera slightly moved while the focus ring moved along with it so the light gradually becomes out of focus 1 3 sec f 6 3 iso20 30 second exposure of tiny LED finger ring lights I was holding them the entire time but because I was not illuminated you can t see me in this picture 7 second exposure f22 ISO 200 This is just a standard long exposure of a sparkler in motion Also keep in mind that if you use a flash the person holding the sparkler will show up in the photograph Regular sparks from fires can also make amazing shots especially if you go in and out of focus during the exposure Keep in mind that you can trace objects with sparklers or LEDs or any kind of lightsource This was a car traced with a sparkler 7 minutes long ISO 100 F 18 You can also use any kind of flashlights or strobes flashes to illuminate your scene Simply turn on your flashlight and start drawing painting spraying light onto the scene to illuminate it in the dark If you have an extremely powerful flashlight it is very well possible to illuminate entire landscapes in the dark as well If you have a tripod on you and you re in an amusement park or some type of fair grounds long exposures of rides look pretty sweet Ferris wheels also work very well You can also make silhouettes of people by taking a long exposure while you move some sort of light behind them Blue glow sticks were used in this example This was a long exposure of Christmas tree lights It was a one second exposure The reason why the lines look so straight is because the camera was jerked in a fast motion These are called physiograms Simply attach Maglight to a string and let it hang from the ceiling turn off all the lights take a long exposure and give the LED a little tap When the long exposure is complete this is what it will look like Again LEDs are just great You can trace objects with them just like you can with sparklers I used the finger LEDs in this example You can also make flash stencils Just put cardboard in front of your flash with a design cut out in it and you re ready to go If you are interested in incorporating long exposure effects and light painting into your night photography I would highly recommend Night Photography Light Painting by Brent Pearson especially if you are light painting landscapes Long Exposures During Day You can also create long exposures of landscapes during they DAY by using an extremely dark filter that attaches to the front of your lens The filter you can use is a B W filter an ND400 filter I d recommend this one or even an Infrared filter Taking long exposures during the day is useful for creating foggy ghostly seascapes blurring clouds blurring water and waterfalls and even removing people from a scene if they are constantly moving
