Long Exposure Workflow

Making the Perfect Long Exposure Shot
In this course I cover all the camera basics, techniques, advanced tricks and retouching for long exposure photography.

I will show you how and why I use long exposure. I teach you about the gear you need and how to use it. I bring you along to 4 of my shoots and show you how I took the shot and give you the raw files to retouch along with me.

Then we retouch another bonus batch of 4 photos where I teach you all about the retouching process, composition, how I got the shot and how to set up your camera to get these types of shots and effects.
