Long Light Theory and Practicum

Saturday, March 21st, 12:00-7:00pm and
Sunday, March 22nd, 9:00am-3:00pm

"While most photographers are dedicated to capturing fleeting moments by slicing seconds into even smaller fractions,
Michael S. Miller has a different tale to tell...Michael takes the time to let the moments simply accrue in what he calls Long Light..."

In this 2-day workshop Michael will share his thoughts and process with you. He begins with the theory which includes discussion on exposures beyond one second, the quality of light, appropriate shooting conditions, pre-visualization, equipment required and more.

During the practicum you will have the opportunity to get out and capture long light exposures. Long light exposures are the interaction of movement, light and time and the results are serendipitous. Visions Photographic Workshops studio is located steps from the Atlantic Ocean offering numerous long light opportunities.

Michael will guide you through the process, sharing with you his thoughts and techniques and together you will explore the mystery and secrets of long light.

Sunday you will have the opportunity to head back down the beach to capture more long exposures.  Then back to the studio optimizing your captures with Michael’s patience guidance and direction.
