About composition

In Blanck and white Long Exposure Photography compositional elements are reduced to the maximum in the sense that, for instance, clouds disappear to become a texture that covers an entire area. The same occurs with sea or leafs. Even with people.

This is why photographers have to specially deal with"negative spaces"

Why Black and White

In the search of long lasting images I found out that the more information is given, the shorter life the image has, for this, black and white provides less information than color and also long exposure technique do.

Long exposure technique requires advanced composition skills but also further knowledges since each film reacts in a different way to light. This is called Reciprocity Failure.
