The Long Exposure is a specialist ebook on long exposure photography.
Author David Cleland runs the FixelPix website, which is a reportage photography website. He is an experienced photographer who sees long exposure photos as the most relaxing form of image capture. He obviously loves what he does.
The Long Exposure is full of stunning images from the British coast, displaying David's skill at capturing silky smooth seas using long exposures.
The ebook starts at the very beginning, explaining to us what long exposure photography actually is and what it involves, before moving on to the necessary equipment and techniques to make your photography a success.
As David explains, long exposure photography is something with a lot of myths and misunderstandings attached to it, which he straightens out before going on to the technical side of long exposure photography, that is calculating your exposure times and settings and then adjusting them to compensate for the filters that you will need to use to get good results.
The reader is urged to be patient and experiment, as calculating the exact exposure times you will need only comes with practise and experience. No doubt this area of photography is a highly awarding one once you master the technique and get used to the methods used.
The ebook also comes with 4 Adobe Lightroom presets, to make post production of your long exposure images really easy.
There is no doubt that David is a great tutor for this subject. The ebook is written in a way that can be followed by beginners, yet is not too patronising for the more experienced photographer wanting to learn a new area of the subject. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn how to take great long exposure shots.
