Richard’s Nokia 808 PureView long exposure gallery (update, and guide!)

Richard Dorman, aka Sheridan01 tweeted about his gallery where he’s been experimenting on some long exposures. Shots there I think date back to July?

Richard is a Nokia and photo buff, and quite rightly is showing off his skills with the 808 PureView.

We’ve seen some official Nokia snaps using long exposures (and that ND filter) before and it’s nice to see more people tackling it.

I love how the water blends together in long exposure shots.

Looks very dreamy

With long exposure’s you’re going to need to have a tripod to hold the 808 steady. Not sure what settings Rich has on his 808 but for day time, lower ISO and set ND filter on (cut down more light).

Moving water is a great subject, especially when contrasted with static components, such as these rocks. The effect would be even greater if the exposure mode on the 808 was longer.

Update: Rich just tweeted a link to his post which gives clear instructions on how to achieve similar results on your 808!

There’s the old rubber band trick for holding up additional glass over your Nokia.
