Let's Use Neutral Density Filters

  • 79-85 Westhaven Dr Auckland, Auckland, 1011 New Zealand (map)

Long exposure photography is one of the most enjoyable forms of photography.  It's a classic mixture of vision and documentary.  It's your chance to be at one with nature as light and location play a symphony before your very eyes.  For me there is nothing more calming and wonderful than watching the sun rise or set in that special location.

Although incredibly enjoyable it's not easy to take good long exposure images.  Many things have to come together and you have to be patient.  Photographers re-visit locations time and time again before they managed to get that image you liked on Facebook.  It usually costs a lot of money, time and effort before you can capture such beauty.  In order to take the best possible image at sunset or sunrise there are a few things you need:

1. a decent camera will help, though nothing can replace experience

2. a steady tripod & shutter release

3. a set of neutral density filters

During this demonstration I will talk you through how Neutral Density filters work and what the advantages of using different filters are for your photography.  This meetup will be a 'learning experience' where the aim will not necessarily be to shoot so much, but instead to learn how to use filters and to learn which filters would serve you best.  I will show you a comparison between Lee and Nisi.  I will also have a few filter sets available for purchase after the workshop, and if I don't have your chosen filter in stock I will have it for you within a few days.

This workshop is FREE, but is limited to 12 attendees.  Register your interest by adding yourself as "going" to the event on Facebook.
