The Compilation of Magnificent Long Exposure Photographs

This time we hold another superb photo collection showcasing dazzling long exposures. This is a trendy technique which involves leaving the camera’s shutter open for longer periods of time to allow more light and movement to be captured. In fact, there are many options for a long exposure. Either it is a built-in shutter speeds setting (from one or two seconds up to several minutes or even hours), bulb setting (the shutter is open as long as you keep your finger on the shutter release button), or time exposure setting (that keeps the shutter open until you press the shutter release button a second time), they all enable truly remarkable results. Long exposure photos are easier to accomplish in low-light conditions, but they also can be taken in brighter light using neutral density filters, for instance. Besides, when taking a long exposure, you may as well use a tripod (or a monopod) to eliminate camera vibration from your hands.

Below, you’ll find the assemble of beautiful pictures using this photography approach. Some of these shots are taken in urban environments, others may capture amazing waterscapes. When you get this technique right, make sure your long exposure can result in truly awesome show of speeding colors entailing light trails, incredible blurs, and smears. But now, might you experience the time and the remarkable sense of speed with the following showcase.
