Are your reluctant to try the long exposure to create an image? In this video, professional photographer and instructor, Layne Kennedy, shows you how to be innovative when photographing at a low shutter speed.

He takes you to a rushing stream below Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis for a portrait session. He positions his model so that the natural light values separate her from the background of dark, shaded trees. He captures her in multiple one-second exposures, instructing her to hold still at each interval. The idea is to create the mood with the creamy, out-of-focus stream rushing past her.

Join pro photographer, Layne Kennedy, for some great landscape photography tips and tricks on creating different moods in photographs using long exposures.
