How Long Exposure Looks Good in Photography.
So long exposure is when you set your shutter speed for 20-30 seconds and then go crazy with your lights. It’s a form of light painting which I love! Long Exposure allows you to capture light in ways that you wouldn’t usually do with normal light kits. I’ve got a few examples right down below of how long exposure looks good in photography.
So this is another examples of light painting. I had my camera’s shutter speed on for 30 seconds. While it was in long exposure taking the shot, I had somebody go up and begin lighting up the cabin with a large bulky flashlight. After thirty seconds of running around and “painting” the cabin with light, the result is as it shows on the photo. It turned out extremely beautiful.
This kind of long exposure is a type of light pattern. For this photo, we had a normal bicycle wheel that was equipped with a string of lights and a spoke that propped it up on its side. I set my shutter speed to 20 seconds and then spun the wheel around in place while aiming my camera at it. The light created this orb pattern that came out super good!
This one was a little bit more difficult since we had a model. I gave the model a light saber to act as a sword, and then the bike wheel to act as a shield. On a long exposure of 20 seconds i had him stand perfectly still as I spun the wheel for him. Since I was working with a model, he naturally moved a little bit which made him blurry, but besides that, the picture came out great!
Hey, Alex! Great job on these long exposure shots! I especially love the orb! It’s sharp and really cool looking! Take a look at Cassie Davie’s work here: https://cassiedavie.com/long-exposure-photography-from-the-mountains-of-victor-idaho/
