Join me and learn the art of long exposure photography. I'll be guiding you through both the technical and artistic aspects of long exposure photography. You'll learn the essentials of camera settings and the use of neutral density filters. I'll also teach you the art of seeing long exposure compositions.

Long exposure photography is a powerful way of altering the perception of time and movement through static imagery. Long exposure photography allows us to slow movement and completely changes the context and story of what we want to share.

Long exposure photography generally requires the use of neutral density filters. If you own neutral density filters, bring them. If you don't have any ND filters, you'll need to purchase at least one. However, If you're curious about what long exposure photography is, just show up and watch the demonstrations I'll be doing.


The location will depend on weather and cloud cover. I'll let all participants know the day before where we'll meet depending on what the forecast is. If there are clouds forecasted we'll meet at Chautauqua Park. If there aren't going to be any clouds we'll meet at Eben G. Fine Park and do long exposure photography at Boulder creek.
