“Fake” a long exposure photo


Fake is not a word I use a lot, however I think it’s perfect for what I am about to talk about.

So, you go out to take some photos near a river or even sea and you don’t have any filters so you can slow down the shutter speed of your camera, fair enough, you can close down to the maximum aperture of your lens, it helps a bit, but you don’t get the desired effect.

In this tutorial I show exactly how to cheat and create that effect in Photoshop, where there is some movement to water and I make it look smoother, just like I had a filter on my lens.

I hope you like it.

If you have any questions or queries, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Take care,
