In a few weeks, my partner and I are heading to London and Iceland for a two-week vacation. While London definitely isn’t a first for us, Iceland is. This trip also marks another important first for me: It’s the very first time I’m leaving my DSLR at home. I’ll be relying solely on my iPhone 6s Plus for all my photos.
Long-exposure photography lets you capture light trails, motion blur and better low-light shots. While the iPhone’s built-in Camera app doesn’t let you control shutter speed and light sensitivity, lots of apps do.

The iPhone has quickly become the most popular camera in the world simply because it’s the camera that’s always on you.

In this guide we’re going to teach you about all of the gear and apps you need to take long exposure photos with your iPhone.
