Long Exposure Photography

Some tips on long-exposure photography in my latest video. I spent a recent holiday in Ireland and visited the Powerscourt Waterfall. Whilst there I took some photos using a neutral density filter and shutter speeds in excess of 20 seconds. I was hoping to smooth out the moving water so that it gave me that ethereal look that you often see. I had a lot of fun experimenting with settings and I’m pleased with the results.

Fast Film & Low Light

Shooting film photography at night or in low light can be a challenge. Flash is often not effective, or spoils the look that we are going for. One option is to use fast film with a high ISO or ASA. In this video I explain the exposure triangle and how using fast film is challenging, but also a lot of fun.

Using my Yashica TL Electro-X and some Ilford Delta 3200 Professional, I take to the streets at night. The film produces some lovely results which I have also included in my “Film” album.

Scanning Negatives at Home

When it comes to film photography there are a number of options available for scanning or digitising our negatives. Flatbed scanners such as the Epson V800 are amazing, but expensive. What can we do if we are on a budget? In this video I make a suggestion that uses a dSLR and about £40 worth of accessories. All items were easy enough to assemble and even if you do not have a dSLR, a mobile phone will also work.

Leave a comment if you have any other suggestions or improvements we could make.
