Long Exposure Photography
Have you ever been amazed by pictures of the sea where the rocks appear pin sharp in detail but the water ghosts around them like a mist? Or a waterfall surrounded by beautifully detailed plants and trees where the water is drawn out into a silky ribbon and the river like a sheet of translucent glass.
The use of extended exposures and filters can transform a scene and give you a new creative dimension to your photography. If you are looking to create your own abstract or fine art photographic effects then this is an area you should explore.
In 2010, I studied with Jonathan Critchley, owner of Ocean Capture and one of the foremost fine art photographers in the world. His techniques had a big impact on me and I have been applying and developing them ever since.
As a preferred supplier of NISI filters I can give you the chance to try some of the market leading filters.
- Camera settings and equipment
- Use of filters and timers
- Motion effects
- Managing exposure
- Low light photography
Please bring your camera (with whatever camera gear you have), drinking water, a fleece and light waterproof clothing, sunscreen and sunglasses.
