I definitely spend alot of time with long exposures.

I'll start with this image, about 1/4"

--Taken at Carter Lake in Colorado. This is a venue I used to frequent for my work with rock sculptures. There was an unusual lack of wind that evening... Rocks are about 40lbs a piece.

The photographs I take of my glass work frequently involve exposures around 8". I adjust for brightness by changing the aperture.

--This is a Sprout, designed to be hung on the wall. It's obviously laying down in this image.

One can really have alot of fun with exposures over several minutes. Open the shutter, run to a point in your frame, freeze for a count, run again. You can create multiple ghost images of yourself on a single exposure using the the run, freeze, count technique. "very sophisticated"

I use a Nikon 8400. It's half way between a "typical"digital camera you can stick in your pocket, and a full blown Dwhatever. I can attach different lenses and I usually run manual shutter and aperture. The 8400 is a wide angle model. I typically make rock sculptures on prominent points, where I can't get very far away from the sculpture without falling off a cliff...

I like my camera for it's size. I can fit the camera, bug-eye lens w/adapter, zoom lens w/ adaptor, cards, remote, and 2 batteries in a Pelican 1200 with Foam. My girlfriend has a larger camera with lenses in a 1400 Pelican, but she doesn't take it out much because it's so big. A Pelican 1200 fits into a 40L climbing pack quite nicely and leaves plenty of room for gear.

I also like the real "cheapo" and lightweight tripods. They work and you don't have to care about them.
