Photography has the power to freeze time, to capture the world and reality. In most people’s mind photography has to be truthful to reality. It has to depict a scene, and atmosphere, and event accurately. But photography is so much more than a simple tool to document our lives…
It is also a way to express ourselves, our point of view, to share our messages. Photography is art. Photography can be abstract and minimalistic. It allows us to change what we see based on our emotions and intent.
Long exposure is a technique that embraces this approach: it transforms reality into something else, into a dialogue between the artist, the subject and viewer. By stretching the time used to capture a single image, the photographer includes movement in their art: water becomes smooth, clouds create long silky streaks, trees blur out in the wind… the effects are endless. Long exposure is a different mindset. One that comes from within and uses what is out there in order to produce unique and breathtaking images. Images that go beyond documenting and bridge into the Fine Arts.
In this technical lecture, Sony Artisan of Imagery Thibault Roland will introduce long exposure and will discuss the equipment needed to shoot with this technique. At the end of the presentation you will have a checklist of the different steps to follow as well as tips and tricks that will help you take breathtaking images using this unique approach.
