Photography has the power to freeze time, to capture the world and reality. In most people’s mind photography has to be truthful to reality. It has to depict a scene, and atmosphere, and event accurately. But photography is so much more than a simple tool to document our lives…

It is also a way to express ourselves, our point of view, to share our messages. Photography is art. Photography can be abstract and minimalistic. It allows us to change what we see based on our emotions and intent.

Long exposure is a technique that embraces this approach: it transforms reality into something else, into a dialogue between the artist, the subject and viewer. By stretching the time used to capture a single image, the photographer includes movement in their art: water becomes smooth, clouds create long silky streaks, trees blur out in the wind… the effects are endless.

For this hands-on workshop, we will meet at our Hunt’s Photo Boston location in the Back Bay, make our way towards the Charles River, and after that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. You will use these subjects to create unique-looking images and learn the fascinating technique of long exposure. Don’t miss this chance to refine your skills and explore new photographic perspectives!
