So what is long exposure photography? Long exposure photography is said to work best when the stationary objects are pin sharp whilst the moving objects are blurred. To achieve this we use filters on our camera lens.The filters work like a pair of sunglasses to reduce the amount of light that reaches a cameras sensor therefore increasing the time the shutter must remain open in order to correctly expose the image.

As exposure times can often run into the minutes a tripod is absolutely essential to avoid unintentional blur through camera shake. (Don’t worry if you don’t own a filter Helen has a couple spare for you to borrow on the day).

The other essential accessories needed for creating long exposure images are lens filters. LEE Filters have kindly donated several sets of LEE filters, enough for everyone in these small workshop groups (Therefore, you need not have a set of your own filters to attend this workshop but if you have, please feel free to bring them along).

Helen has been running workshops in Norfolk for the last four years. The North Norfolk coast is a wonderful area for seascapes, so why not join her on these popular workshops and lean how to control the shutter speed to get great artistic and creative shots? This workshop will start at Wells Next Sea mid afternoon and finish at sunset towards Blakeney quay.

Helen has a passion for photo impressionism and using LEE filters in her own work. Why not have a coffee break have a look at her gallery?
