Long Exposure

Happy Tuesday guys!! I have one question for you. Has anyone heard of the term “Long Exposure?” For those who are not sure, I will give you a quick description. I promise not to bore you. Long exposure occurs when the shutter stays open for a certain amount of time. It freezes moments in an image. If there’s a person in the image, they can appear transparent or blurry. However this must be done using a tripod.

Below my pictures will reflect just that. Feel free to ask any questions.

  1. Well done great pictures! I really love the first one. I wonder how did you get this shot, what was that bright sparkling circle? Lol. Is there a specific kind of camera that is better at taking take long exposures?

  2. Thanks alot. Lol it’s called steel wool. All you need is a whisk to place the steel wool inside of it, a rope or dog chain and a lighter to light the steel wool. Then you would spin it in a circular motion. My friend spinned around in a circle to give it an orbit shape. Any camera can do the trick or a smartphone (with long exposure app) long as the shutter can stay open for 30secs or longer.
