Long Exposure Night Shots.

Long-exposure photography or time-exposure photography involves using a long-duration shutter speed to sharply capture the stationary elements of images while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements.

 Long exposures are easiest to accomplish in low-light conditions, but can be done in brighter light using specially designed cameras.

 Long-exposure photography is often used in a night-time setting in order to produce a near daytime effect in the photo. By leaving the camera's shutter open for an extended period of time, more light is absorbed, creating a brighter product. If the camera is stationary for the entire period of time that the shutter is open, a very vibrant and clear photograph can be produced.

Taken on my Canon EOS 1100D SLR camera between 19:00 hrs and 19:30 hrs today.

As seen from the campus guesthouse.

  1. Liked the 3rd one, there is something about that foreground subject that makes this shot attractive! Keep Clicking!

  2. The reflection of lights in the first three pictures look very beautiful. I think I will try to use your tip of keeping the shutter open, Pankaja! Thank you!

    The last picture is unique. Again reflection in the water and lights in between trees, one barren branch, one with leaves, like frames...lovely!
