Have you seen those photos of smooth flowing water? Want to learn how to do it?
We’re sure you’ve seen those photos of a waterfall or a river where the water looks smooth. Makes the photo look magical, right?
There’s a technique to achieve this type of photo that is called long exposure photography. What is that you may ask? Basically, it’s when you set the shutter speed on your camera to stay open for an extended period of time. This can be a few seconds to several minutes. What this does is that it gives more time for your camera to capture the shot and everything that is moving during this time will look soft and blurry.
Helpful tip: You may need to download a third-party app to let you put your camera in manual mode to adjust the shutter speed.
Trick: Always use a tripod for the best results when doing long exposure photography.
