Long exposure photographs change the way we see the world. Time is compressed so things that move become a soft blur, or disappear altogether. Stationery objects stand out against the flow of time.
To get great results requires the correct equipment and the right skills. This workshop will give you just that.
1. Introduction to Long Exposure
2. Setting the camera
3. ND Filters
4. Visualising and composing the shot.
5. Metering and focus.
The workshop is hands-on and you will be taking lots of photos.
Participants will ideally have a good understanding of the basic exposure controls of their camera and will use a DSLR or Mirrorless CSC. One part of this course is not possible if you have a bridge camera that will not allow filters to be fitted to it. However, after sunset you will be able to achieve good results.
Please look at the syllabus of my Bronze Basic Photography Course to see the level of knowledge most participants have before they attend this workshop.
You will need to bring with you your camera with fully charged batteries and empty memory card.
To arrange a date, please contact me beforehand.
I accept the maximum of six people on this course which will be based in Amble, Northumberland.
Wide angle lens
Strong footware – (I use hiking boots). You may get your feet wet, so a change of shoes for driving home.
Suitable clothing for the weather
ND1000 (10 stop) filter to fit the lens you will be using. If you don’t own one, I recommend Gobe mid-level filters which are great quality and good value. Do check the thread size of your lens
This long exposure workshop is also available as a one-to-one training and can be arranged for pairs or for small groups, please contact me for details.
I cannot guarantee a beautiful sunset, but we will go ahead even if it is cloudy. If it rains or snows, I’ll postpone to another Saturday in January.
