London Long Exposure Workshop

  • Pret A Manger Paternoster Square London, EC1A 7BA United Kingdom (map)

Long Exposure City Workshop

Spend the day with Fujifilm X Photographer and Formatt Hitech Featured Artist Matt Hart  learning all aspects of Long Exposure ( LE ) Photography. This will be in a relaxed and often entertaining way.

Matt uses the Fuji X-T1 and X-T10 in his LE Photography. Matt uses the Formatt Hitech Filter Systems.  

There will be filters available on the day to try if notice is given. 

You will need to bring a digital camera that has a B (Bulb Setting) with a set of filters to include a 10stop or 16stop ND, with a soft edged or hard edged ND Grad in 0.6 or 0.9 and holder and adaptor rings to fit your lens, cable release and tripod. Spare Batteries. Umbrella.

There is some walking during the day and the event may take place in inclement weather so come prepared.  

Long exposure (LE) photography is very popular at the moment and has become even more interesting now Formatt Hitech have introduced the stunning Firecrest 16 Stop filter.

You can now make great long exposures throughout the day and not just rely on the golden hours at Sunrise and Sunset to make stunning images. Even though the light is at its best at these times of the day, with the 10 and 16 stop filters you can create stunning images with smooth silky water and moody sky’s at any time of day. (Weather Permitting)

You will be shown how to compose and frame for compelling images using ND filters.

How to set up your camera for LE and make test exposures and how to calculate exposure times.

Matt will give you some tips on how to avoid hot pixels and diffraction and how to avoid light leaks with LE over 5 minutes. 

You will be able to post your work and talk to Matt after the event through his Social Media pages or by e mail.

Full details of the day will be sent by e mail prior to the event. 

The day will start at 10.00 hours and conclude at 16.00 hours with a break for lunch.

The cost of this event is £89.99 and limited to 5 places. 

 Terms and conditions.

As my costs for the training courses / workshops remain the same no matter how many attendees, like when you pre-booking tickets for the theatre, concert, flights etc, I am unable to give a full refund in the event of non-attendance, regardless of the circumstances.

The Exception to this is if I can find you a place on the next available course, or you can nominate another attendee.

I also reserve the right to cancel any of my workshops if there is insufficient demand, especially if it means that my costs would be higher than our income. Please therefore do not leave it until the last few weeks if you are interested in a particular course, as you may find that it has been booked or removed!  Please note that I cannot be liable for any other costs incurred by you, so please check with me before booking any non-refundable accommodation or transport.

Tickets are not transferable without first contacting me.

Tickets cannot be exchanged, transferred, or resold for commercial gain.

No food drink, accommodation or transport, is provided unless stated.
