Why are my photos white when I do a long-exposure?

All Topics

The problem is that you have too much light entering your camera so your photo is becoming over-exposed. To solve this you need to let less light in, and there are five ways you can do this:

  1. Stop down your aperture (if possible)
  2. Reduce your shutter speed
  3. Lower your ISO (if possible)
  4. Put a filter over your lens (ND or CPL)
  5. Wait for the ambient light levels to drop, like during dusk or dawn
