Todays topic is long exposure photography. When i started out, long exposures were all the rage. It went as far as it was beeing said that basically everything looked better when exposed for at least 15 seconds. And well... thats what i did. I also liked what i did- it took a while and self reflection to realize that many of the stuff i shot would have looked even better when exposed for less time. Nowadays i use long exposures as a "creative tool" when i feel that some blurred moving elements can support the story i want to tell with my image.
In the case of this image i wanted to emphasize that the Faroe Islands are known for the low cloud layers that play with the mountains, so i figured that a little long exposure of several minutes could help me add a special touch to this popular view above Funningursfjord. The exposure also made this look more timeless- and believe me, i could have stayed sitting there for days.
Had to catch a flight home tho- bummer 😀
