Stories, written by landscape photographer Johan Peijnenburg about long exposure photography. Long exposure photography is a technique that uses slow shutter speeds. As a consequence, the stationary elements in a scene remain as they are while blurring the moving elements like clouds and water. As a result, the photographs are often less busy and more zen. Check out our Minimalist photography theme or our Black & White Photography portfolio to see many photographs captured with this technique. The scenes captured with this technique are often lake landscapes or coastal landscapes.
