Long Exposure Photography Tutorial | WHY, WHAT and HOW to take Long Exposure Photos


i’m cooking, some pasta, and Then i will take you to the ocean and we will do some long exposure photography today, we are going to the ocean and we are going to talk about long exposure photography i will tell you why i do Long, exposure photography, what do you need, to take long exposure shots and also i will tell you What is my workflow, so how to take a long exposure photography, we are going to martins beach martins beach is just South of half moon bay so if you’re, not from north california, i will tell you this is an hour An hour south of san francisco so it’s an hour and a half About an hour and a half from where i live which, means that i’ve been here quite a few times and i will show You, some pictures that i took here before What is special about martin speech, is that it’s a private beach so there is a gate at the entrance on the Highway, so you need to leave your car on highway 1 and then you need to walk down one mile To get to the beach, which Is great because most of people don’t do it especially at sunset it’s gonna be very secluded Last time i went there were a couple of whales just Enjoying the bay all for themselves maybe i will i should send some drone shots right now Unfortunately today i don’t see a single cloud in the sky but you never know it’s six o’clock We are possibly 20 minutes away sunset is at 8:28 today i don’t have a lot of hopes but that’s not important we will enjoy the experience Anyways, by the way the pasta Was really really good and Here it comes, my very first tip for long exposure photography before going out just make sure that you eat a very good, bowl of pasta that’s, what i do i strongly recommend So this is the gate and this is the road they will take us down to the beach let’s go Why, do i like long exposure photography Well i think that long exposure photography helps me to create very minimalistic compositions I love seascapes i love the water and i feel that the waves Can be very disturbing it can be an an element of distraction and with long exposure with very long, exposure i’m able to smooth the water and create a very serene Atmosphere very serene mood and that’s for me is The beauty of long exposure i also, like the idea of creating An image that our nude eyes cannot see Martins Beach is great for photographers and Surfers and here we have one Hello, mate how are you I like long exposure, also because it helps me to create a Non descriptive image of a place meaning that the long exposure helps to create, this surreal Atmosphere this surreal image that doesn’t really exist when you look with your own eyes i think, we need to fix the exposure here better all right unfortunately i Still don’t see clouds beside those two up there That will not help a lot At sunset but, we’ll see i think this place is beautiful and You will love it i’ll see you down it’s 6:52 so, we have a Little more than an hour and a half Plenty of time to decide the best composition for today but, also to tell you How to take a long exposure and before what, do you need to take long exposure So first of all you will need a very sturdy Tripod without a tripod there is no long exposure then You will need of course a camera either dslr or mirrorless That will, allow to take exposure with the bulb mode especially if you, want to take very long exposure then, you will need the remote shutter release and The very last thing of course You will need neutrall density filters as a tripod i use a very robust Really, right stuff That’s the name of the brand tripod Which is a brand from california fantastic product i will write somewhere Which model i’m using is i don’t remember and i use this? Really dry, stuff ball head BH55 i believe all the links to the products i use will be in the description below This is super sturdy great For a dslr like the nikon d810 that i use to take, my long exposures I usually scout around the location With, my, camera before placing the tripod in order to see what, is the best composition that i can find of course i will place my, my tripod and Especially where i have sand i will make sure that My tripod digs in into the sand quite a bit i don’t, want the waves eventually to move it at all The second thing i will do of course I will place my camera on it then i have this little pouch where i have all my filters and the filters holder That is very handy to have it placed right here because then i can attach my Remote shutter release, and place it right in so nothing will move Everything is secure safety first So i told you, why i take long exposure photography And i told you what you need Now i’ll tell you what is my workflow and how to take long exposure photography the first thing i will find my composition i will set My camera on aperture priority i’m using a 20 millimeter lens 1.8. Which has the sweet spot so the The best aperture possible at f/8 where where is a very nice sharpness throughout the image so that’s what i’m doing i’m selecting f/8 aperture priority and i will just see Putting the lower, ISO possible and with the nikon d810 is iso 64 i will see what is the shutter speed that i have in this case right now an hour before sunset i have one 125th of a second this will give me an idea of what kind of filters i need in order to smoothen the water Make sure that these very rough waves will become super smooth and in my experience you will need at least 3 or 4 Minutes to do so so i will need to use a an Nd filter that is the least 15 stops i know that Because i’ve been doing long exposure for many, years but there are many apps that you can Use and i will put some links in the descriptions where you just select the shutter speed That you have without the filter and you will have the the resulting Shutter speed that you will need to use Selecting the appropriate ND filter that you’re using now i will take a picture without, any filter and focusing on the rocks All the way there of course, you, want to focus before putting the, nd filter on I want to make sure that my histogram is right in the center no peeking on the right or on the left now That i know, my shutter speed and the histogram looks good i will put my camera in manual mode i Will keep of course the same aperture f/8 and the same ISO 64 i will Make sure that the focus is on manual because once i put The filter in front of the lens the camera if it’s on autofocus will not be able to focus at all and You won’t be able to take the picture i will close the viewfinder In order not to let, any light pass through the viewfinder during the exposure and i will also Select the mirror lock-up because I don’t want to have any shake during my exposure grab my filter holder this iss the nd filter 15 stops and because my scene is super dark in the bottom and very Bright on top i also use a graduated neutral density filter this is a Three-stop soft which means has a soft edge between the darker part and the brighter part So these will darken the upper part of my scene I will place the filters in front of my lens, i will put the shutter speed on bulb oh The countdown has started I got my third, wave in the meanwhile My feet are completely wet and now, we just wait Something like a lot about long exposure photography is also that i’m able to Really, enjoy the scenery, while my camera is taking the photo It’s going to be fine i’m very happy with, my last exposure i think it’s a perfect representation of long exposure photography Unfortunately there is no clouds there won’t be crazy colors at sunset because sunset is actually right now and And this is it i hope you like, this video hope you enjoyed this kind of content if you have, any Question write me in the comments thanks for watching and i will see you in the next video One very last tip before going if you’re taking long exposure photography By the water and you’re, also making a Youtube video, maybe bring an extra pair of shoes

    I love long exposure photography, and you?

  2. Reuben Canagaratnam December 30, 2018 at 1:49 am

    WOW what a great video from a master who makes things so easy. The link you have shared for the filters, I did not see a 15 stop comes with the package. Can you tell me which ones I need to get and also how the ring is mounted on the lens. The last question is what app do you use to get the right amount of stops (filters to use). I am an armature and hobbyist and learning a lot from you.

  3. Mike Brownhill December 30, 2018 at 6:59 am

    Hi Attilio – great video, thanks for sharing. I have one question – why didn't you put your soft grad in place before mounting the 15 stop? That way, you could settle the grad where you want it before losing sight of the image in camera because of the 15 stop. I guess this is more of an issue with harder grads – with a soft grad you can kind of eyeball it in the holder?

  4. Renato Borges January 8, 2019 at 4:18 pm

    Nicel video Mr. Ruffo, here in Brazil we have beautiful beaches too. What steps to avoid blurring the lens with sea air?

  5. Nat Images January 11, 2019 at 4:59 pm

    Great tutorial,stunning shots and location!!!

  6. Samuele Serafini January 11, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    Thanks for this tutorial Attilio, I discovered your channel and you're helping me a lot in taking photos in a different way..
    Of course, always eating a big bunch of pasta before shooting!
    Un saluto dalle Marche! 😉

  7. yazphoto January 13, 2019 at 1:26 pm

    AGAIN i see again and again this video ,and i decided today to buy a 20mm , and manage to cook pasta before going to go with the long exposure .SO YOUR ADVICE ARE FOLLOWED.i share it through facebook also.

  8. Peter Orre January 15, 2019 at 11:58 am

    Excellent video, thank you Attilio for sharing your knowledge and motivations in an excellent and pleasant way! I will get into long exposure photography now, an entirely new photography experience and learning opportunity for me after many decades of picture taking!

  9. Mr31formula January 16, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    Do you use the Lee filters vs screw in filters to eliminate vignetting? Learning a lot thank you.

  10. tgiNawaF January 22, 2019 at 11:38 am

    What's the name of the App you use? Great video!

  11. Ed Bickford January 25, 2019 at 9:44 pm

    Excellent video! Haven't tried long exposure photography, perhaps it's time to get my feet wet.

  12. Diane Smith January 29, 2019 at 12:38 am

    Not sure if I missed something once you get your 1/125 of a second exposure then add the filters how do you know how many minutes it's going to take for the correct exposure .? Great video thank you.

  13. Jim Demetriou February 1, 2019 at 7:36 pm

    Attilio, I'm a recent subscriber and have now watched 4 of your videos. I love your simple lay back approach with a touch of humour. I look forward to seeing some of your older videos as I know I can learn from you. Thanks again mate ! ( PS. more cheese next time ! ) 🙂

  14. J Zayas February 3, 2019 at 2:00 am

    Immediately on my favorite videos mate.

  15. Azul Joy February 3, 2019 at 3:47 pm

    Thank you so much for this amazing tutorial 🙏🙏📸😊

  16. robbie Suchodolski February 4, 2019 at 8:46 pm

    Do you need a filter if so would sun glasses work. I have a Nikon d5300

  17. Sandra Coufreur February 6, 2019 at 4:23 pm

    ; )

  18. Carolina Baeza Pourbaix February 9, 2019 at 8:35 am

    Hi Attilio! Excellent video and tips! Can you remind us which app do you use for calculating speeds with filters? I didn't find it in comments… Thank you!

  19. David O'Donovan February 16, 2019 at 1:25 pm

    "Martins bitch" 😂 I love listening to you.!

  20. Ruud Wiemelink February 21, 2019 at 12:11 pm

    Do you also use Electronic Front-Curtain Shutter in conjunction with Mup? Grtz

  21. Andrea Cassone February 21, 2019 at 9:54 pm

    Un sughetto veloce con pomodorini freschi avresti potuto farlo però! Ad ogni modo ho apprezzato il video

  22. Victor R. Acosta February 21, 2019 at 9:56 pm

    Very good class and video Attilo tks for sharing us.

  23. Oumar Ba February 24, 2019 at 12:58 pm

    Hey Attilio, can I have your feedback on my Instagram's photos: @bo.pix

  24. Alphonse Roy February 27, 2019 at 2:37 pm

    Thanks, Attillo, that is a lovely video with a lot of information presented in a very nice way. Thanks a ton. I am a professional cinematographer who is shifting
    to becoming a Landscape photographer. Thanks again.

  25. Fabien Butazzi March 1, 2019 at 9:41 am

    Mi è parso di sentire un “nothing” con una T tipicamente toscana… 😀

  26. eos4life March 1, 2019 at 5:46 pm

    Hello Attilio
    Great video as always! Quick question: I know that you often like to use polarizer for your landscape photography, I was wondering if you use the polarizer for your long exposure at all, either partial or fully? I imagine that this would potentially cut some or most of the reflexion. But maybe it not so?? Looking forward to your opinion and experience!
    Regards!

  27. Jesse Bass March 1, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    Great video.. The one question I have and have never gotten an answer to is, what is the go to white balance in camera while shooting that you use? Also, I guess I do have another question.. whats the standard set up for you as in ND and Grads? Like, do you use something other than the 3 stop grad with the ND, and if so, which ones? looking to purchase some.

  28. Ray Strickland March 4, 2019 at 2:22 am

    Hi, great video. Do you use the internal noise reduction in the camera.

  29. Julije Jelaska March 4, 2019 at 5:58 pm

    Buona pasta…hehe!

  30. Mauro Cataldi March 5, 2019 at 5:50 am

    La prossima volta però fai un sugo migliore 😉

  31. wNNdSharK March 10, 2019 at 12:49 pm

    So where is Martin's bitch? Oh and don't cook…like EVER again…

  32. Steve Woods March 18, 2019 at 3:25 pm

    Attilio can you double up ND filters, for example a 6 stop and 10 stop to give 16 stops.

  33. Images By Reuben March 24, 2019 at 1:29 pm

    You inspired me and just got my first set of ND filters (Not Lee but Cokin) and will be starting. Can you tell me which cable release you have as I also have D810. Did you do any video on mirror lock up? You are an inspiration and following your new tutorials. Thanks.

  34. Reuben Canagaratnam March 25, 2019 at 3:16 am

    I just came back and looked at my first long exposure shots and while I am not fully satisfied but it is only a beginning. One question if you can answer for me. Do I need to set anything to keep the ISO as low as possible? I noticed that my ISO has increased even when I was on the manual mode. Hope you can help.

  35. Bob Frame March 25, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    Seems to me that the sequence of placing the filters should be first place the grad filter so you can position it in the scene correctly, then add the ND filter which will totally block any image from being visible in the camera. No?

  36. Reuben Canagaratnam March 25, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    Can you give me a link for the Cable Release that you use for D810

  37. Aurélien Vert March 29, 2019 at 12:20 pm

    Am following you on Instagram and on YouTube! I love your work!

  38. Anthony Billis March 30, 2019 at 6:20 pm

    Found your videos yesterday! I am thoroughly enjoing them. You have answered many of my questions regarding the ND filters! Thanks!!!!

  39. DeepForest April 6, 2019 at 3:57 am

    Ciao, Attilio Ruffo.
    I love this video format! Much, much, much more interesting than watching a talking head sitting at the desk all the time talking! Bellissimo!

  40. Flora Moraitini April 6, 2019 at 4:36 am

    Hello Attilio. Thank you for your wonderful videos. I am very very new to photography. Until now I was collecting gear and done a lot of reading. I have the D500 and D700 and D850 is on the way. Cameras have bulb facility for Long Exposure. For Long exposure lenses I have the Nicon DX 10.5mm fisheye, Nikorr 20mm f/1.8 G, Zeiss Distagon 35mm mm F/2 ZF2, Zeiss Planar 50 f/1.4 ZF2, Tamron 45mm f/1.8 VC USD, Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 DiVC USD, and Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 E FL ED VR . I have watched so many tutorials. Your detailed with photos , explanation videos have helped me enormously. What I would be obliged for , is to know how DO YOU calculate the FOCUS point so that all scene will be all the way sharp clear? Do you take into consideration the Hyperfocal Distance, so that you will NOT Focus closer? Do you Focus at infinity? Lastly, how come you do not need the longer telefoto lenses for long exposures. eg 100-400 . I send you my thanks and best regards Flora

  41. James Carroll April 7, 2019 at 4:46 pm

    Excellent! You mentioned apps that help with technical aspects. Can you elaborate, please?

  42. Carlos Rey April 8, 2019 at 4:50 pm

    Attilio quick question….do you get "confetti" on your long exposure images? Inspired by this video, I went to shoot some LE near me…no composition in mind, just practice….but all the dark areas of my image came out with colorful pixelation…I thought my sensor was damaged.

  43. Jerry LLanes April 9, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    Great video.

  44. reks April 11, 2019 at 11:44 pm

    great job Attilio!!!

  48. Philipp Styger April 23, 2019 at 7:43 am

    Hi Attilio. I like watching your videos and I learned a lot through them. I will be in the LA and San Diego area in May and I'd like to do some landscape photography as well as street photography. Do you have some tips for sweet spots for landscape photography such as the one in the video or smaller cities or villages which I should visit? Thanks and keep on rocking!

  49. Carlin Schelstraete April 24, 2019 at 3:29 am

    Great video and detailed information

  50. Ming April 27, 2019 at 10:29 pm

    nice video! wouldn't it be better to compose your shot, then put on the filter holder with the gnd, adjust the gnd and focus first, as opposed to getting your exposure, then adding the nd and gnd together?

  51. jcfm2007 April 30, 2019 at 3:11 am

    Grazie Mille Attilio. I love all your tutorials. I appreciate your generosity in sharing your photography knowledge and your passion. I'll take the opportunity to be in SF for a few months to go to Martin beach. What other places would you advise me to go? Hope to share a pasta with you!!! Ciao. Jean-Claude

  52. Robert Lock May 3, 2019 at 12:31 pm

    I love your videos, you are very good at explaining and your pictures are stunningly beautiful. I have never tried LE photography myself but I would love to start trying. Appart from a camera and a good tripod, What is typical of an essential lens that you will need?

  53. johnny campos May 9, 2019 at 5:46 pm

    I really like the content step by step and the way it explains and presents it, in addition to presenting the final result, the photo.
    I'm learning a lot with your tutorials.

    Thank you

  54. Si Thu May 17, 2019 at 3:03 pm

    Love all your videos.. u are the main reason i fell in love with long exposure. Can i ask you a question? How do you use your cpl with lee filter ? you use normal cpl then attach lee filter holder or use lee 105mm cpl in front of the lee filter holder? I heard people being complaining with 105mm cpl that cause vignetting. Thanks

  55. paul aristidis May 20, 2019 at 10:52 am

    Thank you Attilio for your very straight forward practical tutorials i find them very helpful,i have just started long exposure ,do you think an old manual Nikon 28mm f/ 2.8 series E, is a good starter thanks Pavlo

  56. Alan Alain May 27, 2019 at 8:25 am

    Thank you for your knowledge and great tutorials, what a great job… I had a question in regard of your camera's color profile selected on your camera. I see you took that picture in Adobe RGB but I believe Adobe RGB renders very bad on computer screens vs SRGB, and on many websites (faded/unnatural colors, etc.).
    So does that mean that at some point, when exporting from LR or before when editing, you swap to SRGB for better general public screen rendering ? Thank you again for all the videos you offer us. You're the man.
    P.S. Get exotic with your pasta. Some day buy a good piece of Swiss cheese and grate some on your pasta in place of Parmigiana, you could find it nice…

  57. Norius Lephotographe May 27, 2019 at 2:26 pm

    here is a critique…to much of you and not enough about your subject —>>long exposure…not to be harsh but usually that's a millenium thing ! I am into 6 minutes into your video and you lost me..with your pasta and long long walk and nothing about your title!

  58. HB.S.S. Hair Body Soul & Spirit - My Story May 29, 2019 at 3:44 am

    Mmmm…that pasta looking delicious 😋

  59. HB.S.S. Hair Body Soul & Spirit - My Story May 29, 2019 at 3:53 am

    Crazy prices for all the gear.

  60. alan alain May 30, 2019 at 7:41 pm

    Hi Attilio. Thank you again for the really great video. I left you a question/comment a couple of days ago and I was wondering if you had any tip. It's in regard of the Adobe RGB profile you use, which seems very nice, but reality is that if you export to screen from lightroom a retouched picture in Adobe RGB, the result is very different from if it was taken and edited in SRGB. I believe it even gets worse with prints. I understand that with so many comments on your videos, it leaves little time for replying to all, but if you had a hint, a link, a video of yours or a short explanation, it would be greatly appreciated and very helpful. I see in your comments that many people ask redundant questions, since your video clearly gives the answers, but here I'm pretty sure, having watched it many times (and many more of yours after subcribing), that there is no mention of the color profile you use, Adobe RGB, and many might not have paid attention since it's shown less than a split second on your camera back within the video. Nevertheless I think it's an area that might be important to many, because if you look at the outcome on a regular screen  with the color profile you use, Adobe RGB, or even a print, and knowing that websites will not render Adobe RGB but only SRGB, it raise some workflow/LR editing/export questions. I looked elsewhere but I get a lot of contradictions and a general tip that most of the time, when you're going to send you pictures on websites, SRGB only should be used. It would be great to see what you have to say about the profile you use from shot taken to edited export. Thank you if you find any time for this comment, and again, thank you for your very informative videos.Alain

  61. Sundeep Sembi June 1, 2019 at 8:23 am

    What exposure app did you use please?

  62. alan alain June 2, 2019 at 12:18 am

    Hi Attilio, thank you for your awesome videos. I'm still trying to sort if I should shoot in Adobe RGB vs SRGB, folowing your otherwise great tips. I'm still confused though when I read a Ken Rockwell article (Adobe RGB vs SRGB) or this more recent article from Fstoppers (Adobe RGB vs SRGB) where they seem to state that, for better Adobe RGB ultimately is, it will be systematically converted to SRGB when sent on the web or any device, offering poor results then, not mentioning that, wouldn't it be converted, many screens can only render a fraction of Adobe RGB color gamut, like in the 70 % range about for most. I would understand the AdobeRGB for better quality printing on printers that have that profile but I still don't understand the Adobe RGB choice if it goes to the web since it would be converted to SRGB with color faded results. So, do you convert to SRGB at some point for your web work with editing touch after conversion? The slightest advice of yours on your color profile workflow would be great, as I didn't find any video on your channel specifically addressing the subject in regard of your full workflow with it. If you have any time, that would be an interesting one, and for the viewers that would eventually read this comment and have the same interrogation… Thank you anyway for sharing your extensive knowledge on your channel. Also, your website is great…

  63. alan alain June 2, 2019 at 8:02 am

    … And where in the world did you get Carrefour pasta in this country ? Carrefour is a French/European giant supermarket brand, Target/K-Mart style, and I didn't know they had any point of sale in U.S.. Do you import ? Cherish them to the point you stuff some in your suitcase when you come back from Europe ? By the way, your "Really ?" reply to the comment from the guy wondering if he could achieve your results by replacing your Lee's filters with some sunglasses in front of the lens made me laugh for a good while. That was a good one, and from the guy… Can't wait for the one where someone will ask if your work can be done with a Polaroid…

  64. jaime barajas June 4, 2019 at 3:13 pm

    the pasta had no magic why mention it? but the phpots great love it

  65. Saurabh Salunke June 6, 2019 at 4:32 pm

  66. Mano K June 15, 2019 at 8:22 am

    Hi Attilio, I thoroughly enjoy your videos, tutorials and tips. In a day and age where people are very self centric, thanks for the knowledge sharing. I'm an amature, wanna-be landscape photographer and loves long exposure photography. Can you tell me a good set of ND filter kit with frame and lens that can be baught? Thnx. Manora

  67. Robby Bred June 16, 2019 at 11:01 am

    Amazing video as always ! Bravo Attilio!

  68. Steph J June 18, 2019 at 6:56 am

    Hi Attilio. Thank you for this great video ! Would that be a good practice to first put the gnd, check its position/alignment through the viewfinder, then lock the holder, and finally put the big stopper? Given it was a soft gnd, I'm not sure position/alignment really needs to be taken into consideration though. I'd like to know your view on this.

  69. Nepali Traveller SK June 21, 2019 at 11:20 pm

    Watching your videos It’s like I’m doing meditation 🧘‍♀️ love you attilio

  70. Work From Home June 23, 2019 at 10:33 am

    Beautiful. What if a bird flies into the scene during the time of the shot? Do you just edit it out in post? Thank you.

  71. ricosuave June 23, 2019 at 4:46 pm

    Do you offer opinion on brands other than Nikon? What would you choose between the Sony E mount 24mm f/1.4, and the Zeiss Battis 24? THere is a backorder situation on the GM Sony model and I have an Alaskan trip coming up soon.

  72. Piano Feeling - Satin Beaus June 27, 2019 at 7:29 am

    È incredibile, ma ogni video di Attilio è un'esperienza gratificante. La passione, la voglia di condividere, la preparazione, lo scatto, la postproduzione. Grazie per lo splendido lavoro che fai e per i magnifici scatti che ci regali (oltre ai preziosi consigli)!

  73. Mic Warmington June 28, 2019 at 4:25 am

    please please turn off the music

  74. Mic Warmington June 28, 2019 at 6:52 am

    but in future ? why is it that nearly all landscape photographers on you tube have some inane music playing in the background , however sensitively chosen ? what is wrong with the sounds of nature – the wind, the waves breaking on the beach , bird cries , footsteps, wind in the grasses…?

  75. Roberto Farina June 28, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    Bravo Attilio!! però provaci a fare qualcosa in italiano. Te ne saremo grati!

  76. Joel Wolski June 29, 2019 at 7:48 pm

    How did I not know we were neighbors? Well, close enough anyway. The timing of me seeing this video could not have been more perfect; I was trying to find a place to take my camera this evening (I went to Half Moon Bay a couple weeks ago) and I think I just found it.

    Thank you for this video. I love how so passionate and not stressful this video is. That, after all is the purpose of photography, enjoying the scenery. Thank you

    Hi Attilio and greetings from Italy. Thanks for all the content you publish, it's of great value and with a style that I like. Probably I'm missing something but I understood that you'll have put the tools of the trade in the comments. Any chance to get it ? All the best

    Thank you for taking the time to make a very informative video. I did get a bit nervous for your D850 being so close to surf though. Will give this a try next week when I’m off from work. Cheers. Will

    Hi Attilio I really enjoy your videos and have learned a lot from them over the past year or so. I was wondering if you recommend back button focus in landscape photography and if not why not? It would be great to hear your views….oh and Greetings from Scotland.

    Thanks for the excellent video. I finally went & bought some ND filters after your inspiration.

    Super helpful! I love how you described the process once you set up the camera and how you calculate exposure. I'm in San Luis Obispo County, I look forward to trying these techniques.

    Hello sir, I am a beginer in this game. I have canon 80d and 50mm f1.8. Last night I tried long exposure with my 50mm picture wasnot that sharp but I am happy with the result I got since it was my first attempt on long exposure. Please tell me which lens is good to capture long exposure in my 80d. I want to try with ef mount cause not with efs cause later want to move on with ff so dnt wanna waste money again and again since cannot afford haha… lots of love from Nepal. 💞💞💞

  91. Bob Vogel July 22, 2019 at 1:29 am

    Thanks very much especially for your tips on the tripod and ballhead you use to get these great results. I've just discovered your videos and am enjoying working my way through them!

  92. Carl July 24, 2019 at 10:25 pm

    Incredible Attilio! Thank you for sharing your knowledge with all of us!

  93. Tustinman July 26, 2019 at 4:45 am

    Hello Atillio, this is one of the best videos explaining long exposures. I subscribed to your channel and two thumbs up!!!! Bravo. Thank you!!!!

  94. Antonio Rubio July 28, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    Bellissimi video, ben spiegato in modo leggero, peccato non ci siano i sottotitoli in Italiano.

  95. Darren Grunberg August 6, 2019 at 9:01 am

    Another great video. What do you use to prevent the mist from the waves from getting on your lens
    while shooting?

  96. Edwrd Rodriguez August 7, 2019 at 2:56 am

    I like the way you express your objective, really enjoyed your video, and gladly subscribed for more contents. Look forward. Thank you

  97. pbartoli August 7, 2019 at 1:54 pm

    Hello Attilio, to achieve close to 15 stop ND filter effect, can I also combine a 10 stop + 6 stop ND filters (two screw-in filters) ? Do I get 16 stop ?

  98. Frank Menkel August 10, 2019 at 11:34 pm

    Great video. Well explained long exposure. Will have to check out Martins beach. Looks beautiful.

  99. Daniel Gunter August 11, 2019 at 4:04 am

    Eat pasta; take better photos! Man, I love that tip!

    I'm really enjoying your channel. Your photos are lovely, and your explanations very clear and helpful. This is a delight. Thank you!

    This is the 2nd video I've watched by Attilo Ruffo. As an experienced photographer and teacher of photography, I am again wowed by Attilo's clarity and humanity. In addition to learning the skills of the lesson, Attillo shares his total and very human experience in taking a photograph. I find this approach inspirational but sadly absent in most, if not all, the the videos I've seen.
