Photography Tutorials: How to shoot long exposures with no filters

In this tutorial I go over how to shoot long exposures of water without having to use filters. I go from in-camera setup all the way through my post-production workflow in Photoshop.

  1. Great video, could you point me in the right direction about how to clean up your photo? You sped past that part. I have always heard that if you do it right in camera then you don't need to do it post. So, if I take a pic and use a grey card or incident meter and when it's in camera Raw it never shows a perfect histogram. Do I need to edit then? And if and when it does need to be adjusted, I need to learn where to go from there. There's got to be some kind of formula to cleaning up your photo. Could you make a video or do you have one or know of a good one to teach me how to do that? Even just making adjustments in general.

  2. Mind If I ask, if want to edit in photoshop does it need raw file or jpeg? Because when I load they never merge for me, I have to merge my self, after I do that I can't even use stack mode, I need help to be honest

  3. good tutorial, although the entire shot seems underwhelming. I know the tutorial was explaining long exposures without filters, and that was spot on. It really helped explain the process. But the final edit on the photo, the top portion (sky/trees) were really bland, and distracting from the subject (waterfall). Do you agree?

  4. Both Cannon and Nikon offer multiple exposure mode. Set your camera continuos shooting mode, put a trigger release on, set your camera to 10 1 sec exposures and hit your remote. Let the camera combine them. My rule is to do as little work in photoshop if any at all. Great work and photo this is just an alternate method.

  5. What happened to the good ole days where you can take amazing photos without the help of a computer? After watching this video I think I rather find a lens that can take an ND Filter and just get the shot right the first time.
