My Passion towards Long Exposure

posted in: Photo Stories | 3

Memorial Bridge, Bangkok f/20, 10 sec, iso-64

I developed a passion towards Long Exposure, ever since I saw the picture of car back light trails and fireworks, I always wondered how is was possible to capture such pictures? After getting my first DSLR I started trying all kinds of setting in manual mode of the camera. Some tips from website like was great help for me.

For long exposure shots, I always use the manual mode trying to keep the ISO as low as possible. If there are glowing lights, to get the star effect on these lights I try to keep f-stop value above 14 and shutter speed depends on the shot. I have shared some of my long exposure shots here with exposure details.

    Very nice shots…. Sangesh. For me, I will take the night shots as fast as possible (to reduce the noise) & permanently off the Noise Reduction during the night shots.:)
