I haven’t posted in a while. My apologies for that. I’ve been crazy busy with travelling and all sorts of other (good) things. I am back at it though, and hope to be posting a bit more regularly again in the coming months! Here’s a photograph of a lakeside sunset to start with.
This lake landscape photograph is the last one in a series of photographs that I captured during a long exposure sunset shoot at Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) near the Swiss town of Préverenges. I shot this with my Nikon D800E and made a conscious choice to turn off long exposure noise reduction on my camera. The best part of a sunset doesn’t last that long, so turning it off allowed me to do more. Never again, though! The D800E adds thousands of tiny white spots to each photograph with that setting turned off. I was aware of that, and it can be taken care off in a post … but wow … what a time-consuming and annoying task it is. So … more images from that night will follow … but very sloooowly 😉
I used only a 10-stop Lee neutral density filter to push the exposure time to two minutes. The white spots were removed using spot healing in Adobe Photoshop. This was actually the first time I used Photoshop on a published image … I hope you like how it came out!
