Long exposure photography is a variant of trick photography that involves using a long shutter speed to sharply capture the still elements of an image while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements of an image. Like shooting a light trail. When we use long-exposure technique to capture light from the head-lamps or rear lamps of a moving car at night, the result is that the paths of moving light sources become clearly visible. They look like streaks of glowing colors.
Long-exposure photography is exactly what its name suggests. In this technique, the length of time a camera's image sensor is exposed to light is increased for a considerable time. This technique is mostly used while shooting at night. It help photographers to boost brightness of a scene. With continuous experiments and trials, photographers have discovered a whole new artistic approach using the long exposure. They can now add magical, eye-catching and artistic effects to a subject specially if it is moving lights at night, or a spinning carnival ride, fireworks, vehicles on highway etc.
Long exposure when used during night can result in light trails that depict movement and speed in your picture. Long-exposure can also be used to smear the appearance of moving water such as in rivers, streams or waterfalls. Long exposure when used on fog or mist, it can create a mysterious dream-like atmosphere.
