Top 4 places for taking Long Exposure Photos at Neusiedler Lake in Austria

For some time I wanted to write an article about my top 4 places for taking Long Exposure Photos at  Nesiedler Lake (Neusiedler See). This lake is close to my heart from the first time I was there. Three years ago I started taking Long Exposure photos and indeed since that time I return to this place regularly.

This lake is my training ground where I try to improve my vision. It’s the perfect place to learn how to work with composition. Thanks to the fact that  Neusiedler Lake is almost behind my house I have the opportunity to deal with different weather conditions when shooting. The photographs appearing in this article were photographed in overcast, cloudy sky and also during fully sunny weather. It’s proof that you must constantly experiment. Never give up even when the weather is not ideal.

Which filters to choose for Long Exposure Photos?

I already shoot Long Exposure Photos some time, I dedicate to this genre of photography in a greater depth than probably most of you so I decided to write this article about my experiences and hardships that I have experienced. When buying a lens is often said that it is difficult to advise, you need to try it and already then you find whether it is good for you or not. For ND filters it does not apply and this article, I hope, will help you to make the right choice and thus save your time as well as considerable funds.

How to calculate the exposure time

How to calculate the exposure time in Long Exposure Photography

How to calculate the exposure time in Long Exposure Photography is one of the most important basis that is necessary to learn if you want to become a long exposure photographer.

The procedure to calculate the exposure time, however, remains the same.
