Long Exposure Photography- Sunrise

Recently, I had the opportunity to capture the sunrise. I wanted to do some long exposure photography again, this seemed like a good excuse.

For this outing I shot with the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 and my Nikon D3100. For most shots I was shooting wide open at for about 30-15, but as the sun came up I moved more to 1/100-1/200.

I did mess with them a little in Lightroom and convert them into .jpegs also.

More than the color, I really like the texture of the images. It reminds me of an oil painting in a strange sort of way.

It’s really fun to edit long exposure photography because of all of the data you have to play around with, but Nature’s color balance is usually good enough.

I’m generally more of a night person, so it is always a treat to see the sunrise. It’s a miracle that happens everyday!

I know these aren’t great photos, but I’ll definitely try to experiment with this again and get better ones!
