The long exposure photography technique utilizes a long-duration shutter speed to sharply capture the stationary elements of an image while blurring, smearing, or obscuring moving elements. When a scene includes both stationary and moving subjects (for example, a fixed street and moving cars, or a camera within a car showing a fixed dashboard and moving scenery), a slow shutter speed can cause interesting effects, such as light trails.
Long-exposure fine art gallery photography is easiest to attain in low-light conditions. By using neutral density filters or specially designed cameras, however, they can be taken in brighter light conditions.
Please see samples of the long exposure photography technique below.
