WHAT YOU ’LL NEED

NPhoto - - Nikopedia -

Many scenes con­tain move­ment, and by choos­ing the right shut­ter speed you can con­trol which el­e­ments of the pic­ture are blurred. The tech­niques for do­ing this are rel­a­tively straight­for­ward, but you will need the right equip­ment.

TRI­POD

You’ll need a tri­pod to keep the cam­era still dur­ing the long ex­po­sures re­quired for these shots – the heav­ier the bet­ter, to cut vi­bra­tions.

ND FIL­TER

There’s too much light in the day­time for long ex­po­sures, so you’ll need an ND (neu­tral den­sity) fil­ter to re­duce it and al­low long ex­po­sures.

RE­MOTE RE­LEASE

A re­mote re­lease will pre­vent you jog­ging the cam­era when you fire the shut­ter. Some have timers for long ex­po­sures.
