Brew up a fresh cup of coffee because Gordon Laing has an epic new video showing everything one needs to know to take some excellent long exposure photos.
Laing, the coffee consumer extraordinaire best known for his work on Cameralabs, goes into great detail showing how to set up a camera for long exposures, the different filters available for this style of image, considerations to make for the composition and what elements to include inside the frame, and shares other tips and tools that will help anyone achieve great images. At 21 minutes in length, this is the no-holds-barred guide to long exposure photography.
While some areas of photography can sometimes reward those who dive in head first without any sort of preparedness or lesson with highly creative results, the inherent length of time it takes to capture long exposure images — sometimes minutes per one frame — means it’s probably a good idea to sort out some of the basics beforehand.
