Schreiber, a German photographer, shoots daylight photographs with long exposures—in this case, 2 seconds. Schreiber used a Nikon D300 with a Nikon VR 18-200 lens, set with the focal length at 60 mm. Camera settings: ISO 100, aperture 32.0. He also used a grey filter that increases the exposure time by 6 apertures.

  1. This is fantastic! I’ve done a lot of pinhole work and long exposures at night, but it never occurred to me to use a dark filter and shoot a (semi)standard aperture with a long exposure in the daytime. I’ve got to try this.

  2. This is an amazing shot and very clever. I really enjoy all the motion captured in the ocean.
    I was shooting the beach a few weeks ago on Martha’s Vineyard when the hurricane was stirring up the ocean-never thought about such a long exposure! Next time…
