Tutorial: Long Exposures and Slow Shutter Speeds

Tutorial: Long Exposures and Slow Shutter Speeds When you’re first starting out with Photography, the concept of long exposures and slow shutter speeds seems like a strange myth that you are determined to uncover the answers to. You may see other Photographers work while scrolling through your various news feeds, of winding light trails, crystal clear reflections, or that smooth, silky effect achieved when slowing down the flow from bodies of water. These photos are usually always visually pleasing, and you ask yourself: HOW DO I DO THAT
