How does he do this?

Does anyone know Steen Doessing ? I'm wondering how he succeeds in making those fantastic misty landscapes (or better 'waterscapes') ? Please have a look at his website and enjoy.
Is there some retouching involved in these pictures?...if so, how can you achieve something like that?

Thx,
Herman

Thanks for the link, JanMetDePet...

Beautiful images! I'm positive that there's a bit of post production, but I'm no expert on landscapes. I'm sure some other members might be able to give you more info!

He says on his website that he uses very long shutter times; combined with some work with levels in Photoshop or Lightroom seems to be all it is.

yeah he uses very long exposure times to get that silky sky and water effect, besides that i can't really see a whole lot else going on except for the obvious conversion to black and white.

Re: How does he do this?

In the mean time I have been browsing the web on this kind of photography. It seems to be more than just long shuttertimes. Please have a look at Rolfe Horns website, who does similar photography. On the techniques section, he explains how he gets to his pictures. Check the first picture. He's showing there the technique how it's done with analog photography, but of course this must be feasable as well in photoshop, right?

I agree with you. You can see in the image how an still object is perfectly focused, and all the rest components of the pic are usually in continuous moving. With long time exposures, using tripod (of course), you get that shilky look and the still objects focused.

I think the movement of water is bigger and faster than clouds (normally), so I think you have to work a bit in the sky/clouds to get a similar efect in both surfaces. But not very much than leves/curves adjustment to the overall pic.

Hope it helps....Javier.

Thanks to all for the lists.
Maybe not a lot of retouch but a nice work.
