Photo Challenge – Long Exposures

Long Exposures

I’ve been spending a lot of time recently on long exposures, really on ultra long exposures.  Because of how much fun it’s been, I thought it would be fun to do a ‘Long Exposure Challenge’ with some photog friends.  This is what we all came up with.

Photo Challenges

We had a great time doing another photo challenge, we’ll need to do another one soon.  They always seem to take a little longer than expected though 🙂

Life Looks Better at 50mm

For this challenge, we decided to limit the lens, shooting only at the classic focal length of 50mm.  It’s as close as lenses get to similar zoom of the human eye, so it makes for great compositions.

The Ugly Photo Challenge

Well as usual, I took a little longer getting this up than I planned.  Sorry folks!  I know I’ve still got one or two more coming in from some friends, but I’ll add them when they arrive.

The Ugly Challenge!  This was a fun one for me.  I really like the concept of finding something that was not so ‘photogenic’ and making it seem more interesting.  Thanks to those who participated, and there is more coming soon!

Well it’s taken a bit, but as many of you remember, we did a ’10 Minute Photo Challenge’, and it was pretty awesome.  Here were all the great entries to the challenge.  Now that the new site is up and running, it won’t take me (quite) as long to get the gallery up!  Click ‘More’ to view the gallery.

Wohoo the 10 Minute Challenge Photos are up!  Check them out HERE!  Here’s what I came up with.  I was really worried that the great light streaks that were shooting across the sky, but the 10 minute timer went off, and got lucky with a great foreground.

Also, we’re back from an awesome 10 day trip all around California.  It was honestly epic, and I am exhausted 🙂 exactly how one should be after a great trip.  That’s the good news.   Now here’s the bad news.  My computer is out.  It’s heading off to the factory, and may be out for up to a couple of weeks.  I don’t know yet what I’m going to do, something hopefully to be able to see and share the photos.  We’ll see, but it may be a while before we start seeing some of the trip photos.



Did you miss the deadline for the 10 Minute Challenge? Well guess what, you’ve got another 48 hours! We enjoyed all the submissions so much that we’re adding a bit of time for all who haven’t made it out yet. Submit soon! This will be the final deadline as I’ve got some vacation starting Friday 🙂

Step 1 – Pack up your photoequipment (we want to see all types of cameras, even your cell phone!).
Step 2 – Travel (by any means you like) for 10 minutes.
Step 3 – Photo!
