Writing with Light

Slow – The Magic of Long-Exposure Photography

As you can tell from the images above I love long exposure photography and creating effects with intentional camera movement. So you can image how excited I was when I found out that this month’s Craft & Vision ebook release was entirely about this topic.

With Slow – The Magic of Long-Exposure Photography by Andrew S. Gibson,  Craft & Vision adds another well written and informative ebook to its ever-expanding photographic library.

If you enjoy long exposure photography or are looking to get started then this is a great resource to include in your personal library of photography books.

While I’ve been using the term “long exposure” and the subtitle of the book states it as well there is so much more that Andrew Gibson delves into. Andrew covers various topics such as:

Recording Motion using a slower shutter speed to convey motion in your photographer in order to tell a story.

Panning with and without people.

Intentional Camera Movement covers different techniques where the photographer deliberately moves the camera during an exposure thus creating interesting blurs and abstract images.

Long Exposures (admittedly my favorite section)  discusses the equipment, techniques and the types of  locations to seek out in order to create striking compositions and images.

Andrew also covers off camera settings; using the correct exposure (and how to calculate it); exposing to the right; different types of light for long exposures and more.

In addition, there are also two case studies included by Outdoor Photographer  Dough Chinnery and Fine Art Photographer Joel Tjintjelaar.

Andrew S. Gibson is a photographer and writer who has written many titles for Craft & Vision as well as his own releases.
