With a bedroom looking out towards the Berlin TV Tower, our hotel was a perfect spot for a nighttime photo. A mini tripod on the windowsill and a long exposure were all that was needed to capture the light trails from the passing traffic.
This is one of my favourite places – Penmon Point on Anglesey. Approached down a long and narrow toll road just outside Beaumaris, it has a stony beach, a couple of fisherman’s cottages, a quaint little cafe, and of course this lighthouse. At low tide you can get right to the base of the lighthouse, but at other times the waves make for great long exposure photos.
Usually when I’m taking photos of waterfalls, I shoot a longish exposure with my camera on a tripod. With just my phone with me, I improvised by using a long exposure app and supporting the phone against a railing. It just about gets away with it …
Not the statue by Antonio Canova, but the three iconic buildings that dominate the Pier Head in Liverpool, and represent the maritime history that the city is famous for. Three merged long exposure shots taken on my Sony camera rather than my ‘usual’ iPhone setup.
