Default Long Exposures - Walk On The Wild Side

Have had this idea of using props in water shots for quite a while and only got round to trying it out a couple of days ago. Did want to use loads of pairs of shoes, but the thought of hiking down and back up the falls put me off All comments and thoughts appreciated.

These are great and very creative. Love the soft water and the contrast of the wellies. Hope you didn't intend to wear them after they got waterlogged

Very nice shots - the under-exposure works really well for these, I love the first one especially. Great idea and well executed!

Fantastic Diane!!! The first 2 remind me of the invisible man.....if you look at them long enough, you can just see the ghosts wearing the boots!! Love the way the water looks in 3 and 4, especially 4, looks like ice!! What a terrific and creative idea, and no George in sight??

Hi Winterr and thanks for having a look. These shots were taken with the Canon in Aperture Mode, all around f.22, ISO 100, 30sec.

When I used the FZ45 I shot in Manual Mode, Aperture f.8 and ISO 80. If you use this as a base then you can play round and change the Aperture and ISO to get long exposures from 1sec to 60sec depending on the time of day and lighting conditions that you are shotting in. For my first try with the Fz45 I was shooting in the afternoon at the same waterfall and getting exposures of 1/5 sec to 8sec. Its a really fun thing to try. I am not an expert at all in this field. OzzieTrvaller, Backyard, and Square One are all clued up on long exposures and have given me lots of advice. Drop them an email and they will help you out as well.
