"Long Exposure" shots





Daniel15
The other day, I was bored during a car ride, and started playing around with "long exposure" shots. Basically, these are photos with a slow shutter speed, and result in some interesting effects. I'm not too good at photography, I just like playing around Razz

Take a look (click for large version and more details):



(for anyone in Melbourne, the second one is intersection of Separation Street and High Street, Northcote. I forget where the first one was Razz)

I'll try to post more soon Smile

Heh, I didn't think of that.
I like using the first one as an avatar Very Happy

The first one is really nice how the light is like a very bumpy line and it looks like electricity.

How fast were you moving when you took these? Very Happy

Heh, yeah, that's because my hand wasn't steady (I was holding the camera with one hand, and the road was kinda bumpy). Definitely makes for an interesting effect, though Smile

I was with a classmate in Rome last year and he did this too. It's pretty cool (both).

Finally, an avatar change for Daniel15. but look who's talking, eh?
I like the effect these long exposure shots generate... it really makes for some awesome effects, even ones you weren't expecting.
My dad took a couple of long exposure shots of one of those guys who play with fire, and they really look neat... I'll try to find a digital version of them if I can.

I love looking at long exposure pictures. I actually want to try doing some, but I'm going to need to invest in a tripod before I get on to doing stuff like that hehe.

Now try that with a tripod (or a flat rock or chair or car hood or whatever) and flowing water. Or anything that emits light like fireworks, sparklers, glo sticks, or stars. Or use a cheap strobe light for some crazy effects.

Ooh cool. I always wondered how you get those interesting effects. I totally forgot about longer exposure times x]

It'd be cool to do that from like a hill overlooking an area of a city with many streets and buildings.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternating_current has an interesting shot too.
