One of the joys of photography for me is taking long exposure shots. Astro-photography, light painting, light trails, or turning moving water into silky smoothness. However, leaving the shutter open for more than a fraction of a second introduces the need to keep the camera perfectly still. A tripod is therefore essential and sometimes a remote shutter release is too.
In the world of digital photography, we have a great deal of choice in terms of remotes. But what about vintage film photography? In my latest video I explain what we can do in the analogue world.
