Default New Challenge...Long exposure..May 21-June 3

The long exposure or slow shutter speed can create interesting effects with light, such as light trails of a moving car at night. But effects such as light painting can be fun to do and incredibly creative.

Think of capturing a waterfall, carnival ride, fireworks, moving vehicles, the moon and stars, a child with a flashlight, a bonfire.

Here are some articles with simple "how-tos".

Have fun, I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Question: How long is long and does the photo have to have light trails or blurs?

Good morning Daz,
Light trails and blur not necessary and long is however long you want it to be.

I imagine it would be as long as a piece of string.
