Long Exposures

Long Exposures can be fantastic photographs and you can also be creative in making abstract shots.

Long Exposure

For Long Exposures it is important to have a tripod or something solid and steady to sit your camera on. The second most important thing is to set your camera to 2 seconds or 10 seconds auto count down and/or a cable release, instead of risking camera shake when pressing the shutter.

Below are a few examples of what you can do with long exposure times:

Details: Exposure: 30 Aperture: f/3.5 Focal Length: 18 mm ISO Speed: 100

Star Trails are fun to do and so amazing!

There is a program called Star Trails.exe that automatically stacks your images together producing an awesome image of star trails!

The theory with Star trail stacking is simple, all you must do is setup your camera facing a clear sky with stars and do exposure after exposure!!!
