Chris Kotsiopoloulos is the man behind the 30-hour shoot which produced the amazing 360 degree panorama of a day and night in Sounio, Greece. What’s the longest exposure you’ve ever done? Show us your best shots!
Greek astrophotographer Kotsiopoloulos took on the challenge of taking hundreds of long-exposure shots over a 30-hour period. The end result? A mind-bending panoramic image (called a stereographic projection) of 24 hours in Sounio, representing an entire Earth rotation.
Kotsiopoloulos started snapping early in the morning, as the sun peeked out of the east. The sun’s path across the sky is eventually seen until it disappears into the night where, opposite, there are spirals of stars.
“I had to stay in the same place alone for 30 hours in total to get everything right, prepare and take the pictures. At night it became even more difficult because I had to keep my eyes open and inspect the camera lens for moisture." He even had to use a hairdryer to keep equipment from moistening. Afterwards, he pieced the photos together into one 360 degree panorama of, quite literally, a day (and night) on Earth.
Those who have tried the manual bulb setting on their cameras (like on the La Sardina) would know the rewarding feeling from a successful long-exposure. What’s the longest exposure you’ve ever done? Show us your best shots!
