Today I’m gonna bring you an exciting showcase of long exposure photography that will take your breath away! Long exposure is used when you want to blur moving objects in the frame and you want to leave still objects sharp. To do that, you should place your camera on a tripod to avoid any camera shake for a long time. By saying “long” I mean anything from several seconds to several minutes.
Of course, long exposure times can be used in different ways. You may want to blur everything in the frame or just capture a still night scene with no moving objects. The point is that most dramatic effects are usually achieved by combining still and moving objects in the frame.
The technique of long exposure is quite popular, but still a difficult form of photography that allows you to experience time in a different fashion. That makes it possible to see things from another perspective. By the way, the longest photographic exposures in history was took by Michael Wesely. He was invited by Museum of Modern Art in New York to record the re-development of their building. And the shutter of his camera was open for up to 34 months.
Thus, without further ado, here I share a round-up of 100 impressive and unbelievable long exposure shots for your inspiration. I’m quite sure you’ll love these stunning waterfalls, night traffic and starry sky. No matter if your’re a photographer or just a long exposure fan.
