Daytime Long Exposure Photography with Jürgen Lobert

Session2: 11:00 – 11:45am      Session 4: 3:00pm – 3:45pm

This is an introduction to daytime long exposure (DLE) photography by New England-based fine art photographer Jürgen Lobert. DLE photography records 1-15 minutes of time in a 2-dimensional photograph by using neutral density filters. This creates unique and intriguing images of the world that we usually freeze in momentary exposures. Letting time pass during exposure converts clouds into bands across the sky, smooths waters to a mirror finish and can make people and moving objects disappear. The resulting imagery is ethereal and strangely beautiful. Jurgen will cover equipment, settings, theory of light density and demonstrate concepts with many of his photos.
