The Art of Long Exposure

The landscape changes when the shutter is left open for a longer duration. Long Exposure photography transforms static still images into dramatic, dynamic and ethereal Long Exposure photographs. Long Exposure has been a primary element in my photography for many years now, and is my favorite way to communicate my vision for a place in time to the audience.

My “Art of Long Exposure Photography” presentation focuses on the techniques, compositional tools, the movement of natural elements and camera tools that are unique to Long Exposure Photography. The presentation will review the basic camera gear needed and will cover the wide variety of conditions where Long Exposure photography can have dramatic impact on the final photograph.

Travis Rhoads is an international award winning fine art photographer working in a wide range of photographic genres. He has a unique ability to have a conceptual vision of the finished image before the camera is ever turned on.  The results are well crafted dramatic black and white images, vibrant and ethereal color long exposures and landscapes that immerse the viewer in the scene.

His artistic background extends back to high school where he received awards for his fine art drawings and paintings.  In college he studied architecture at The Savannah College of Art & Design where he received a Masters degree.  While at Savannah College of Art & Design he also took several photography courses that jump started his passion for photography.

His images have found homes across the country, and he is always on the search for his next work of art. More information and examples of Travis’ work are available on his website:
