    to doing star trails is to take a bunch of 30 second exposures and then overlap all the images on your computer using a program called Startrails There is a minor drawback to this method for every 30 seconds of an exposed photo there is a 1 2 second time period where the camera isn t taking an exposure This makes it so there are little tiny spots not visible in your star trail It is a very minor drawback but ultimately it is a better method because there isn t as much noise 20 minute exposure at F 3 5 ISO 200 or 400 Other Fun Long Exposures A creative use for the ND filter would be to take a picture of a watch or clock In this 4 minute long exposure you can see each second hand as it moves around the clock These eyes were constantly moving while the camera took a 1 5 second exposure No Photoshop This was a one second exposure Half of the exposure the eye was open then after 5 seconds the eye was shut What you see is the eye both open and closed at the same time This is a long exposure at night time of snow falling The snow was illuminated with a light and a tree is in the background 3 seconds This is an example of Solargraphy Solargraphy is the process of taking long exposures with pinhole cameras that last several MONTHS to record the light of the sun This is a 6 month exposure taken by solarigrafia on Flickr There are also other things you can do with long exposure photography Long exposures during the day allow water and clouds to blur leafs on a tree will also blur if there is wind In addition you can also take a long exposure in a very crowded city where lots of people are walking and completely make the crowd invisible by taking a long exposure during that day You can also use a long exposure and then fire multiple flashes to light your subject in different ways and or to multiply them in number You can also spin your camera to take perfect straight blurred out lines or you can zoom in and out with your lens while the exposure is taking place Long exposures also come in handy during lightning simply take a long exposure and wait for the lightning to show up The challenge create a long exposure that has all of the above Light painting light spraying star trails and lightning all in one photograph Okay I realize it would be hard to get lightning but try to include them all if you can Because long exposure photography is such a large topic there is only so much I can write in a blog post If you want to know more information on lights techniques and effects check out my Trick Photography and Special Effects eBook It has over 60 pages of content solely
