The Long-Exposure Itch
As an intermediate photographer it is super-natural to fall into the temptation of long exposures, capturing light all over the roads.It is indeed a very good exercise to understand the working of the shutter-speed of the camera in an outdoor environment. However, doing this every now and then is not easy and possible out of a tight schedule.
Here in this post i’d like to present an experiment you can do right at your place, without moving out a step that can help you creatively maneuver the long exposure.
This is a table top experiment, where i use a macro lens, an external source of light beam ( a torch with a diffuser will do) and of course our very own , the Long Exposure.
I’d say this long exposure experiment is far more challenging in nature because you can not keep the aperture at its narrowest, because its object photography and you have to rightly balance and control the ambient light.
Extra Note: These experiments can be put to challenge your articulation quotient. In the experiment on this Long-exposure one can see the second hand travelling 10 seconds thereby making a pattern of time lapse and sometimes spooky effects.
Hope this helps and stirs.
