Professional photographer and Fujifilm X-Pro 1 owner David Cleland shares his knowledge and experience of long exposure photography in his new eBook, The Long Exposure.

In this book David talks us through everything from the basic equipment you need, through the technical aspects and onto post-processing of your captured images. Included are six Lightroom presets that can be used to enhance your long-exposure scene.

The book is well written and explains everything in simple terms for the beginner photographer so anyone can follow the technical aspects of long exposure photography without needing advanced knowledge of your camera or photography.  That doesn’t mean more advanced users would not benefit from reading the book and benefiting from advice based on his own experiences.

Throughout the book we are treated to an array of David’s beautiful long-exposure images, which are all water -themed as that is David’s speciality in this area.

He explains how he goes about setting up the camera, offering hints and tips along the way gained from his own experiences.  Discusses composition and the need to stand back from the technical side of things from time to time.  For me the most interesting part was how he processed the images in Lightroom, again giving away some great tips to enhance your image.  The book surrounds the use of the X-Pro 1 in long exposure photography, but his techniques can easily be applied to any camera with the use of general photographic terms anyone can use with any equipment.  Post-production work describes his use of Lightroom and the addition of the 6 great Lightroom presets adds significant value.

The book is priced at $5 and is worth that just for the beautiful Lightroom presets alone.  If you’re interested in getting into long exposure photography it is well worth a read and could well end up saving you money by advising you on what you need without spending too much on expensive and unnecessary gear.
