26 Eye-Catching Examples of Long Exposure Photography

Advertisement

Long exposure photography is really amazing technique to capture light and movement. When an image is taken including stationary and moving subjects (for example, a fixed street and moving cars or a camera within a car showing a fixed dash-board and moving scenery) using a slow shutter speed, interesting effects, such as light trails occur.

Long exposures are easiest to accomplish in low-light conditions, but can be done in brighter light using neutral density filters or specially designed cameras.

Here i have collected 26 eye-caching examples of long exposure photography.

    Traffic lights are always interesting, however the shot that stands out for me in this collection is the forest at night.

    There are a few pictures here that definitely stood out. I also agree with Manz, the forest at night is very eye catching.

    Wow! What a beautiful collection!

    I really like the one with two buildings topping up to the sky… Simply beautiful.

    Thanks!

    22 out of 26 isn’t bad.
    (in other words – 4 aren’t long exposure. 3 are slow shutter speeds, but certainly shorter than 1s, and one is at LEAST 1/400 or so)

    WHOA THIS IS AMAZING!! How do you take pictures like this?!?

    These photographs have taken my breath away. They are simply stunning. Fantastic work!

    Fabulous ! Love the first picture….takes my breath away

    I’m a big fan of Patrick Smith. A lot of these are just crap though. Go set up a camera anywhere and do a 30 second exposure and you’ll get the same thing.

    light trails from cars? and cityscapes? really? these are remarkably un-original for the most part. a few of the ones with water are ok.

    but seriously, some of them aren’t even for-sure long exposures. they could just be high speed film or photoshop tricks.

    boring.

    The 9th picture, showing the sun over a bridge is definitely not a long-exposure shot. The cars are perfectly captured, and I looked at the properties on the Flickr page, and that shot was taken at a shutter speed of 1600. That’s pretty dang fast. Great pics otherwise though.

    bb, please post your amazing pictures for us to enjoy.

    truly inspirational stuff, even though as some previous comments have pointed out. Not all are long exposures.

    Real art, I collect city photos because they represent a lot of hardworking taxpayers money and if we don’t stop sinning, they’ll be HISTORY. Of course, the History Channel would like to see it all gone and us with it! Thank you!
