What if all you need is a selection of go-to settings and some low-cost accessories ? So that you could capture perfectly timed long exposures every time you shoot?
And the photos you captured received hundreds of likes on Facebook and Instagram…
My name is Josh Dunlop, and here’s something few people know… You can master long
Pictures so smooth and stylish that they look like they came out of a magazine . You don’t need fancy equipment and you don’t need expensive training.
Here, I’m going to prove it to you.
Take a look at this…
I took this picture before using the techniques I’m about to share with you. As you can see, it’s a decent picture, but it won’t win any awards.
Now, look at this…
I took this picture a few seconds later. Same location, same camera, same composition… very different settings!
It Was Only a Matter of Time (About 2 Seconds)
Between the first and second photos, I added a simple $20 filter to the front of my lens. That stopped some of the light from getting in.
This meant that I could experiment with long exposures… without overexposing the scene .
I found that shooting for two seconds (and not more) was the perfect
Photographers often assume that 30-second exposures are better for shooting water. But at 2 seconds, I was able to:
- Capture the action and movement of the water rushing into the pool
- Contrast the smooth water against the jagged rocks for a stark comparison
- Take more photos and experiment with the composition until I was happy
And all I needed to get this shot was a simple $20 filter. But it’s possible to take stunning long exposures with no filter at all…
Stunning Long Exposures With The Gear You Already Own
You don’t actually need expensive gear and accessories for long
In my experience, you can get stunning long exposures with the gear you already own. It all comes down to when you want to shoot… and how well you understand the process .
don’t get hung up on gear
and focus instead on
I started experimenting with long exposures back in 2006. It was mostly out of necessity as I didn’t have time to shoot in the daytime.
That gave me a ton of experience with shooting with basic gear .
And using the method I developed, I can take photos like these, with nothing more than my camera on a tripod…
If you can follow simple instructions, capturing great images is as easy as clicking a button .
Adjust Your Shutter Speed AFTER You’ve Taken The Photo
Most long exposures that photographers capture are too long. It’s possible to have too much of a good thing.
But there’s a simple technique that allows you to decide on the length of your long

Using this method allows you to have
total control over your
If you’re shooting a scene that changes quickly, this is the best method for taking great shots.
Capture Unique Photos Most Photographers Can’t
Life is better when we capture the wonder of the world.
You’ve developed your eye to spot stunning long exposures everywhere you go.
You pull out your camera… already knowing the exact shutter speed that’s perfect for the scene… you have a bunch of go-to settings on hand.
With just a moment of setup, you’re ready to capture the world in a whole new light.
You don’t have a single worry about using a filter, finding the right settings, or missing the moment.
After a small amount of experimentation, you’re able to capture striking photos .
Less than a minute later, you’ve captured a series of photos so action-packed and awe-inspiring … you won’t stop shooting until your batteries are dead.
It sounds far-fetched, but…
I’ve developed dozens of ways to shoot interesting long exposures in any situation.
I use simple setups, with basic gear, to produce stunning results…

Shot over 10 days in Sicily, we explored mountains , beaches , waterfalls , and lively markets … to give you a complete understanding of how to shoot long exposures, in any location.
Our videos average 11 minutes in length and are straight-to-the-point. This way you can quickly learn a new technique and give it a try immediately.
It was professionally shot in HD with two cameras, and we’ve provided subtitles for every video too.
The end result is a stunning and
easy-to-grasp course on long

Remove people from lively scenes
Capture weather with trees in the wind

Don’t Waste Your Time With Long
There’s an assumption that the longer the
The whole point of long exposures is that you can capture the action and movement in a scene.
If you shoot for longer than is necessary, you’ll lose the most interesting details.
Take the two images below for an example.
The image on the right was captured for half a second. And it captures a striking contrast between the movement of the water and the stillness of the pier.
Compare that photo to on the left (captured for 4 seconds), and I think you’ll agree we no longer have an exciting image.
There is a
subtlety to long
Not only will you save time, but your photos will be much better too.
With over 100,000 students, photographers love our training. But don’t just take our word for it, check out what some of them have to say about our other training:
“I was hooked… you’ll be so excited!”
We worked really hard on creating the most valuable long
Hans Jacob Beck
Thank you for the excellent teaching of the secrets of photography! You have made me so interested and eager to learn. I am 64 years old, and I hope that photography can be my favourite activity in days to come. I have never experienced so much professionalism as you have given me in your video-lessons.
I can’t say enough about this course! After spending hours online watching different how-to videos along with reading several articles and not feeling like I was learning enough… I came across Expert Photography and I watched the entire course in one night because I was hooked.
For anyone wanting to get into photography or even just brush up on their skills, I HIGHLY recommend all of Josh’s courses. It’s worth every penny. And once you’re finished you’ll be so excited to get out there and practice everything you’ve learned!
I have taken a lot of different online photography courses, but this one is the most fun! And I have learned a lot, too. I think Josh’s directions and explanations of why and how are really easy to understand… the course is well thought out and well detailed.
The 5 Pillars of Impressive Long
Photography (Value $299)
“Infinite Exposures” covers everything you need to take stunning long
Pillar 1. Easy
However, your camera settings are
. That’s why we cover them in great detail. From understanding how stops of
These videos will show you how to control the movement you capture, and the action in the scene.
Pillar 2. Basic Gear and Simple Setup
You can capture long exposures with nothing more than your camera on a tripod.
But if you want to shoot in the middle of the day too, we recommend using specific light-stopping filters. These are called ND (Neutral Density) filters and they don’t have to be expensive.
We have separate videos on tripods… intervalometers… filters… apps… and even videos on how to set up your camera during the day and night.
Pillar 3. Water-Flows, Splashes, and Waves
That’s why we’ve dedicated five different videos on waves crashing into a pier… water flowing over a dam… boats rocking in a harbour… and more…
I even cover techniques that will show you how to shoot with wind and rain.
Pillar 4. Daytime Shooting
Shooting during the day is the best time to get unique photographs because you often have to use a filter.
This is something the average photographer either doesn’t have at their disposal… or doesn’t know how to use correctly.
If you can master a few simple setups, you’ll be able to capture photos that most photographers can’t .
We’ve filmed videos around the island of Sicily covering topics such as:
- Removing cars and people from lively scenes
- Capturing sunsets with moving clouds and changing colours
- Shooting scenes with dramatic weather
Pillar 5. Night-Time Shooting
Shooting at night requires a very different approach to daytime photography… it could almost be a separate course.
You don’t need to use filters, but you do have to change the way you experiment with composition. And the shutter is still vitally important here.
In this section, we cover night photography, star photography, and the professional method for capturing light trails from cars…
Limited Time Bonus Added!
Go-To Settings for Long
(Value = $99)
Throughout the course I share the settings that I’m shooting with, and they vary from scene to scene.
Instead of having to memorise these settings, I asked our designer to put together a beautiful cheat sheet for you.
It details the exact settings and gear needed for your photos.
You can print it out, or keep it on your phone, and refer to it when you need it. That way you don’t have to take notes throughout the course.
Bonus #1 – Star Trail Photography
Did you know it only takes 20 minutes to capture a star trail image like the one below?
But you mustn’t take a single 20-minute
Instead, we take a series of photos and stack them together in Photoshop with a few clicks. I’ll show you exactly how it’s done in this bonus video.
Bonus #2 – Time-Lapse Photography
(Value = $99)
Time-lapses actually require long exposures for the best results.
And when you shoot a sequence of images, waiting for the best shot… you can reuse these images for a stunning time-lapse video.
The process is a little tricky, but I show you how it’s done in this bonus video.
