I was in Melbourne last weekend to spend some time with my brothers and step mum.

I was also there for a photography lesson with Leanne Cole.
It was fantastic.

I was able to learn about how to do long exposure shots and it helped quite a lot.

After taking a few snaps and getting some food, we started working.

Leanne lent me a filter and mount to use for my camera and showed me how to set up for the shot, as well as suggesting and taking me to parts of Docklands to shoot based on what would work for the day.

Yes, I am plugging Leanne Cole.
I don’t care.
It really was a wonderful experience and I recommend it.

What I really liked about long exposure photography is how it can make a lot of things look smooth and still.
There’s a certain quiet atmosphere to them that’s quite relaxing to look upon.

The last shot is my forty-fourth entry into Leanne Cole’s “Monochrome Madness“.

I’ll post more of the shots I took in Docklands at another time, but for now I’ll leave you with these.

Despite them showing that I’m very new to long exposure, I like how they turned out.

I hope you enjoy.
