    When you achieve focus by AF, what do you mean to 'lock' focus, how do I do that… thank you. Very much enjoyed the content, will get out and use it. Have liked and subbed .

    Photography is such a vast subject. This being another example of one technique that can be further examined and mastered. Great work my friend. Great video overall. Cheers 🍻

    Very good, I have a question, I'm starting with long exposure photography, how do I focus, first I focus without the filter and then I put it on, or I focus with the filter on the lens, the filter is very dark and some situations I’ll use 2 or 3 filters and I don’t think you can focus on them in front of the lens.

    Nice video! I noticed some nice compositions behind you at the lake in the moss covered trees that you should explore too.

    Thanks for the lesson. My DSLR went bust several years ago, still saving for a mirrorless full-frame body and then the telephoto lens! Will not get to practice for several months to come. Still with above average interest in photography, I did learn a lot from this video since I've had tripod and filter challenges in the past. Naturally, I'm a subscriber to your channel now!

    Adam, Thank you so much for your much welcome guidance in this video. I see that you have a ball head on your tripod. What makes you choose the ball head over a pan & tilt head (for easier maintenance of level horizon)? I am about to purchase a tripod head, but am wrestling with going between ball head vs pan & tilt. My photography is mostly landscape, seascape (surf), wildlife (ducks, geese, etc) and flower Macro. Thank you.

    Just getting into this style of photography, love this video, it’s very helpful. Wondering if the circular polarizer ever plays into your workflow of long exposure photography?

    I've been doing long exposure at night for decades but other than water falls never much messed with it during the day. I'm headed up into the Front Range next week for some landscape work and plan now to play with some long exposures. Great video!

    Great tips, love long exposure photography it's fun even if it does take a lot of time. Good to get out and take things a bit slower.

    Hello, very interesting, your videos, I would like to know something, personally I like to take photos of landscapes with long exposures and I would like to know if some trees fall within the frame and you are using long exposure times and they are somewhat blurred by the winds, it is a technical error or is it part of the result of these long exposures

    Outstanding video to wake up to… love your work First Man Photography. Curious as to the lens you have on your Canon, looking to add a wide angle like the 16-35mm f/2.8L to my 7D Mark II.

    Thank you for explaining so much about long exposures. I have dabbled and failed so far but will try again armed
    with a better understanding.

    You start this very (too) quickly with a very unclear sentence and then go on to say that very assertively that 'that is the ' key to long exposure photography.
    Well if it is so darned important you might at least take your time to enunciate it clearly!
