How To Create A Realistic Fake Long Exposure Effect In Photoshop

Create a Realistic Fake Long Exposure Effect in Photoshop

Nothing looks quite as good as using an ND filter when it comes to long exposures. But if you don’t have one, there are wonderful ways of producing the effect in post-processing. I created this video tutorial to show you how to create a realistic fake long exposure in Photoshop.

You will learn to use 2 separate techniques, which can be used alone or combined, as in this video, to great effect. I hope you find it useful.
