  1. Correction: You can get the same effect as an ND filter by doing image stacking in Photoshop. Take a bunch of pictures that would add up to a 2 second exposure and then bring them into Photoshop as layers. Convert those layers into a single Smart Object and set it's blend mode to Mean. Boom. Long exposure. Works in a pinch if you don't have an ND filter handy.

  2. You lost a fan here… Tried to get the presets… Signed up for your website… THAT isnt enough… Then I have to like and share your Facebook and YouTube…? Some serious scamming going on right there. No thank you. If you want all that just for some presets, then say so. Don't scam people. Not to mention, I did all that and STILL the presets were not available. So it was a complete trick and scam. Not cool.

  3. Great video, thanks for posting it. The "shoot at night without a tripod" thing is a mistake I've often made, as well as failing to use ND filters. As an enthusiast photographer, I am still learning new things and every year I get better. ;)

  4. Bonjour Serge!! Merci for this lovely tutorial!! May i ask if you have any tutorials or tips for taking good makeup pictures /headshots and eye makeup close up!! I am into makeup but have no clues about photo. I have been offered a Canon Powershot Sx530 camera and a speedlite and other accessories. Merci!!!
