If you shoot long exposures, you’ve been there. You are wading in a stream (or the snow, dark, or any of other adverse conditions we routinely face). Trying to do the mental math to add ten stops to your exposure. Fumbling with your phone, trying not to drop it in the water. Then more math to convert the seconds you came up with into the minutes the timer needs. Wait, how long did I say that was? Start over… Or is that just me?
It doesn’t have to be that way. Enter Long Exposure Timer, a simple Apple Watch app. Enter your metered time, dial in up to 20 additional stops of exposure compensation (OK, we do stop at six days. We had to stop somewhere), and if it is over 3 seconds, start a timer for the exposure. All from your wrist. All with your phone safe in a pocket.
Long Exposure Timer was created by a long exposure photographer to answer the needs of long exposure photographers everywhere. It is a stand-alone Watch app, so it works without a phone or an internet connection which is not always available where we shoot. Purchase now in the App Store.
