What is Long Exposure Photography, you may ask? It is a remarkable technique that allows you to capture time in a single frame. By extending the duration of your camera's exposure, you can blur and soften moving elements while simultaneously highlighting the static aspects of a scene. The result? Stunning images that evoke a sense of dynamism, ethereal beauty, and a touch of otherworldliness.

Imagine capturing the mesmerizing trails of light as cars zoom past, transforming a bustling cityscape into a symphony of colors. Picture serene waters turning into a dreamlike mist, imbuing your landscape shots with an air of tranquility and serenity. With long exposure, you have the power to transcend reality and craft evocative imagery that awakens the viewer's senses.

What's included;

  • An introduction to Long Exposure Photography and the principles of how to set your camera up.
  • A short tour around Old Portsmouth. Setting up for these shots will take time, so there will only be two or three locations on this workshop.
  • Tuition and guidance provided throughout the event, on both a one to one and group basis, to maximise your potential.
  • Once finished shooting I will guide you through the steps I take to process and edit the images.
  • You leave with full understanding of the settings used and have the ability to replicate the same elsewhere (including editing techniques).

Essential Gear;

  • Camera and lenses - doesn't matter what you have. I can work with most camera manufacturers (I use Canon and Sony - So I will know more about them). If you have a wide angle lens, that would be beneficial.
  • Tripod - Definitely essential. Required for long exposure photography.
  • ND Filters - If you have any, bring them. We will be doing exposures from 3 seconds, up to (anything - Iv'e done a 17 minute exposure before). Your camera will probably only allow you to go up to 30 seconds in bulb mode.
  • Off camera shutter release - this is essential if you have to go over 30 sec exposure.
  • Food or means to buy food (This is not supplied on the Workshop) - snacks and water.

Anything else is a bonus.

Parking is free (only after 6pm) all other times are paid, and road parking is potentially regulated by permits, so you may need a few pounds to park. We will be walking about a bit, and it may get cold, so wear appropriate clothing and shoes.

The best car park can be found at - (Free After 6pm)
