If you’ve been reading along on our “It’s not the camera” series… we are pleased to let you know that this post will follow the same theme. Which, outlines the notion that any dedicated camera can help you in bringing your photographic vision to life! If you have an interest in learning photography in the more traditional sense, you’ll be happy to know that it doesn’t necessarily require thousands of dollars of equipment to begin learning and start shooting. The most modest of dSLR or Mirrorless models will do just fine.
If you’ve ever gone on vacation, cell phone in hand, and returned home to find your photos somewhat lacking when you look them over on your computer’s larger screen (or even if you’ve printed them to the same effect)… This post is for you!
For this “It’s not the camera” installment, I’d like to demonstrate that sometimes we might benefit with less skepticism. Most important in regards to this series is not to dismiss your ability to capture amazing imagery, regardless of the tools you use (It’s not the camera, after all)… As a bonus, don’t always completely dismiss something that might seem obviously to be “phishing”. If you are planning on putting your work out there for sale, sometimes, you’ll see, it is worth taking a bit of a chance.

As photography is simply the ability to capture light, it makes perfect sense that “Long Exposure” photography plays on that key concept. The difficult part however, is how to capture the light to create those tantalizing images you see in all of the magazines and the internet.
With this blog post, I hope to show you just how easy it is to capture gorgeous scenes for you and others to cherish for a lifetime. Read on to experience the 7 easy tips for amazing long exposure photographs that will overall improve your long exposure photography.
