Monthly Program

Jay Cohen Presents:

“Playing with Time: Creating Images with Long Exposures”

This program is scheduled for October 10, 2019

Long exposure photography is a way to solve some challenges that photographers have, and create images that have a certain aesthetic appeal. In the presentation I will define what long exposure photography is and talk about the main reasons why I use this technique; such as low light situations, capturing movement and removing distractions. I will provide numerous examples of each of them and discuss the story behind many of the photos. In addition, I will offer tips and advice on the technical aspects of long exposure photography and discuss some of the challenges photographers face when using longer exposures – such as focusing and setting the correct shutter speed.
