Long Exposure Photographs

Long exposure photographs are art. Legit art. So producing those does take quite a lot of skills but fear not! It's more fun-ish than hellish. Buut before that you might want to check out the article on basics here (Beginner Alert).

Starting form — Things you need to take a long exposure photograph. You need a stand. Preferably a tripod or some other rigid surface that does not move and keeps you camera safe all the same time. Don't even bother with the stack of objects. That shit is dangerous. Now you need this because you will be working with a very long shutter speed. You can't shoot those with bare hands because your hand movement, even the slightest one, will ruin the photo. It does. Try it. You are not made of stone, it's true.

Second, you need patience. Yes that is right. Now a long exposure photographs are taken of objects that are moving. That needs a particular scene fit for a long exposure and above all that needs the light conditions that compliment your settings. For all these things you need patience. Go to the scene where you see just enough motion to create something dramatic out of it. Once you hunt that down, you are partly ready.

Next thing — Settings. These settings depend on the time you are going to shoot something. Is it night or is it the day?

It's a great thing if its night because your gear would be enough for you. Now you need to know how much light your gear is going to get exposed to. The night time (less light) compliments the long exposure photographs. You see a shutter speed of a more than a 1 second is A LOT of light. So, it loves nights. Now when you analyse the condition (take a few test shots to find out yourself), you need to adjust the settings.

These are the settings you need;

 • A Long Shutter Speed

 Of course. Long shutter speed or what's the point? You might want to increase it based on the speed of the object you are shooting. If it's a car, a 1 second S.S will do. If it's humans walking, you might want to increase it to a 3 seconds, because the motion will be slow.

 • More Depth

 Yes, you need depth in your photo. Bokeh is not for a long exposure and guess what? that goes just right with a longer shutter speed as well. You decrease the lens aperture (f/22 or more), less light gets captured and for a longer period of time (long shutter speed) and voila! a masterpiece in making.

• A Filter (Optional: For Daylight only)

Try shooting a long exposure during the daytime. Hint: You'll get a white image. Yes, of course you will. Daylight does not go well with long exposure because there is practically WAY TOO MUCH light. Increasing aperture won't work here either. So why do you still see stunning long exposure shots at daytime? One word: Filters. Yes, lens do have filters. You buy them separately but they are there and for a good reason too.

Now there are many filters in market. Many. The one you need for Long exposure in the daylights is an ND Filter (Neutral Density Filter). There are several types of ND filter too like a graduated or split ND filter. You can use either, read some reviews before buying tsk. These are used to compensate with light, of course, so you won't get a white photo now, shooting some stream or cloud movement or anything during the daytime. It's a good investment nonetheless, if you are into that sort of thing. 

That is all folks, for now.

Making a FABULOUS cosplay

If you are geek chances are you are also a very good cosplayer. Well what do you know? We are here today only to talk about it. In fact! why just talk about it and why not give out some valuable info on how to rock the show.

I think somebody said one, "If you don't have the dough, have the passion - it's almost equivalent." And if somebody didn't, count that quote among sekki's. Anyways, cosplaying is something that is fun socially but maybe not financially. Geeks would agree! The cost a brilliant cosplay might require could vary from woah to WHAT THE FUCK ARE  YOU KIDDING ME? So mostly, the passionate lot ends up using passion for power and making some kickass pieces ― so cheap they end up in  the headlines. [Spoiler: We are here for the same purpose] 

(GEEK ALERT)I broke down several ways that could help you get a brilliant costume for your next cosplay. And believe me! You won't wanna miss this.

The Book of my life

Void of bliss is the atlas of my life,
Anecdote of my paraxysm, insinuated be knife.

Every page is the manifestation of malady,
Clandestine and secluded, scrutinized by nobody.

Untold story

Quiet they say "Shhh", let nobody hear you, 
I am breathing and zoetic, my mouth not to be sew.

I want to screech and squeal, can't keep it restricted. 
Wail until each and every part of my agonizing allegory is uttered.

Cracked Soul

Heart immersing in the pit if ooze, 
For now, I don't have anything left to lose. 

 Soul astray, vagabond and blotched, 
Crevice appeared where it had been notched.

3 cruicial lessons every photography beginner needs

I've been exploring the world of photography since three years and to tell you the truth - there is no more beautiful thing than capturing any subject of attraction with absolute perfection. Photography is magical...buutt it takes several trial and error to master the art. It's always good to consult someone who has an exposure in this field as a head start -- it helps you avoid mistakes you wish you had.

LESSON NO#1 - Always Shoot RAW
This is exclusively for the lot that is going to take photography very seriously and is not going to restrict it's value to better facebook displays - for the later lot, I would recommend JPEG.

So what exactly is RAW and JPEG?
You see, our photographs have a certain file type aka format. A DSLR allows you to take your photo in either RAW or JPEG(high or low) or JPEG+RAW (basically two files, simultaneously).
