Long Exposure Photography using ND Filters

May 22, 2020

On this 3 hour coastal Long Exposure Photography workshop, we will guide you to learn how to shoot dramatic and awe-inspiring coastal landscapes and how to take long exposure photographs. Learn the use of Neutral Density (ND) filters (we have some to borrow if you don’t have your own) so you can use longer shutter speeds to create beautiful effects with movement from clouds and water.
  • Very comfortable, small group size 4-6
  • Practice-oriented with hands-on experience
