Long Exposure Photography

Long Exposure Photography

Saturday the 23rd of July
Avenham & Miller Park - 10am - 2 hours
Long Exposure deals with using a very slow shutter speed to capture motion happening typically in low light situations in order to create an effect of light passing through your frame. Think of it as how the Millennium Falcon travels at lightspeed and you see how the stars are super stretched out, that's what we're going for! This is primarily only possible at night as that is when it is dark enough to really sell the effect of light trails. Students will learn how slower shutter speeds and longer exposures can make photos stand out in a different way while being in a normal setting, the city is perfect for this as it provides us with tons of light and movement to create something spectacular and visually appealing.

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations around Preston.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Preston Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions
