Re: Long Exposure Question

I usually shoot with 10 or 13 stops and in my limited experience, I agree with Jim. I find it hard to get it right at a pre-determined exposure time and I'm typically one stop off - over or under. Maybe I lack lengthy experience but in either case, I would agree that for a beginner it's best to at least anticipate that there will be a learning curve - and more fun too. By the way, there are apps that make the theoretical calculation of lengthy exposure times easy. Other than that, hang your heavy bag from your steady tripod or do what I do, use a Joby and wrap it around a rail or branch as strong as you can:)
