What is long exposure photography?

Long exposure photography is when you take a photo over a prolonged period of time.  It is an image that you cant take handheld if you want it to be sharp. By using long exposure it will create blur within the image. Traditionally it is used for water or clouds, or even to remove people from images. This effect is created by using what is called Neutral density filters that we attach to the front of our lens

The Long exposure workshop, is it for you?

For our tutors Dibs and Duncan’s own work they only use the market-leading Formatt Hitech Filters Firecrest filters. We fully appreciate photography can be an expensive passion, so with this in mind, we will supply you with the filters and adapters for you to try out on the session, this gives you the best opportunity to see exactly what you will get for your money should you then invest in a kit. But best of all, this is a great opportunity for you to see what type of filters you prefer for your style of photography, again things we will explore throughout the session.

We can advise you in what kit to get as it can be a little daunting looking at what you may or may not need.

We also have a discount code for buying filters, just apply DIBSM10 or DARNOLD10 at the checkout of the Formatt Hitech Filters site. If you have any questions of what setups to look into purchasing feel free to ask
