Long Exposure Photography - London with Nigel Wilson

Event info

The RPS Website is currently undergoing upgrades. Please contact to book a place on this workshop, or call 0117 3164 464.

Maximum 8 participants.

Dream-like long exposures made easy on a wonderful day in London with Nigel Wilson. With the use of neutral density filters, it is possible to take very long exposures even in bright conditions.

You will be sent a link to a recorded section of the introduction before the workshop, so that you can watch it at your convenience. You will be able to contact the tutor directly if you need an answer to a specific question.

The Meeting point is Cafe Nero at the base of the Oxo Tower on the South Bank.

We stop near Tower Bridge for a bite to eat.

We usually go into Five Guys - but if students prefer, they can bring their own packed lunch.

This one day workshop in London will explain the exact techniques required to create stunning ethereal images unlike many others.

What to bring: Camera, lenses + ND filter(s).

Some spare ND filters and tripods are available - please contact Nigel for details before the workshop.

Bring a packed lunch or use local facilities.
