Long exposure photography is both easier and harder than you think.
Many have asked about my long exposure photography eBook and I am so happy to share that it is now available. The title Time Is On Your Side: Exploring Long Exposure Photography explains itself, but I will describe it for those who do not know what long exposures are.
It is when a photographer uses specific techniques, like extended shutter speeds and specialty filters, in order to create an effect in a photograph. Often times the same technique is used to remove moving objects from a scene. For example, removing moving people and cars from a busy city intersection. The long exposure technique is most noticeable when fast-moving water, like waterfalls and ocean waves, are smoother than when normally captured by a camera.
Did you know you could set up a camera and tripod in Times Square and with a long enough exposure you could completely remove all the people in the frame. Yes, not a single person in the photo… in Times Square. Learn how in the long exposure photography eBook.
