What we're about

Want to take your photos from the everyday, to something truly extraordinary? Want to learn fun photography techniques to make your images truly unique? Here are just some of the photo techniques we’ll be exploring.

Blurring clouds, water falls and beaches

Traffic trails

Star trails

Light painting

Motion blur

Lots more!

To begin with, we will explore how to take your take your camera off automatic mode and learn how to shoot in manual mode. All you need is a digital camera that has manual mode, a tripod, a $20 remote shutter release and possibly some inexpensive neutral density filters.

The first meetups will be in local parks with views of Long Island sound, waterfalls, or rivers. We will also be scheduling light painting events. We will provide a wide selection of light painting tools to create compelling images.
