Long Exposure Photography Meetup
Sunday 21 January
Broad St, Old Portsmouth - 6pm - 2 Hours
If you really want to make use of the long Winter evenings as we head in Autumn, and to add an extra flair to your photography, then long exposure photography may be for you!
Long exposure is where we make use of very slow shutter speeds to allow as much light into our camera as possible. The effect? Light trails, blurring, smearing, and obscuring of moving elements with a creative (sometimes ghostly) effect. The fundamental for night-time photography, astrological and abstract ideas.
This meet up is for all abilities whether you are an advanced photographer, or a complete beginner, you are very welcome.
We will meet in the heart of Old Portsmouth on Spice Island to see the wandering busy streets, view the boats in the harbour (and potentially focus on the night sky if we have a clear night as it is a new moon phase!)
