A camera with a manual and bulb mode is the first equipment required for long exposure photography. However, to be able to use a slow shutter speed (which is what long exposure photography is all about), you need a camera that allows you to manually adjust the ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, an entry level camera will do just fine. Bulb mode is another option that is beneficial for your camera to have. With this mode selected (it’s located in different places on different cameras), you can expose an image for as long as you want. Basically, as long as you hold the shutter button triggered, the camera continues to take the image. [Image Credits: Snapdeal]
