THE THEME: Long exposure

Long exposure

The confinement is over and we are all slowly restarting a normal life. Added that the summer is now here, let’s make the best of those opportunities to shoot again!

Lately we have been inspired with some amazing shots shared by our members on social medias. It motivated us this quarter to challenge your creativity and skills around one technic: The Long Exposure.
We won’t be any more specific on what a one exposure is and expect that this will be obvious on the shots you will be sharing with us.
Long exposures can be waterfalls, cloudy sky, city lights, but also action sports, dancers or even storm lightning… The limit is your imagination so we count on you to surprise us.

Long exposure workshops will be organized soon to help developing your skills and inspirations. The workshops will be announced on the website and on Meetup so stay tuned!
