    star filter screwed on the front of your camera lens This will slice and the light into thin lines This looks cool when you twirl the filter around your lens as well because the stars will appear to be twinkling Use manual focus still in bulb mode and simply move your camera around your Christmas tree while the exposure is taking place You will end up with really techy yet beautiful abstract photographs that you can use in backgrounds for Photoshop projects or the like Put your camera on a tripod and zoom in while the exposure is taking place If you have a higher end DSLR I m using a Nikon D300s there may be a Multiple Exposure function somewhere in the camera s menu I like to set it to ten and then take several exposures each shot at a different focal length Tweet Tagged as artistic photography ideas camera Christmas Christmas tree lights creative photography ideas cross filter dslr fun holiday instructional lights long exposure multiple exposures nikon photography photography effects photography tutorial psychedelic special effects star filter trick photography tutorial video walkthrough xmas lights zoom 9 Comments Recommendations Entries Wineglass Splash Studio Photography Tutorial My Photography Best of 2013 Photography Masterclass is Now Online High Speed Powder Photography Tutorial Glowing Lines Photoshop Tutorial Open Source DSLR Announced D800o April Fools Multiple Exposure Photography Tutorial My Photography Best of 2012 Hybrid Image Optical Illusion Photoshop Tutorial Snow Photography and Special Effects DSLR Tutorial DSLR Basics Stops and Metering A Room Filled with an Obnoxious Amount of Money My Photography Best of 2011 Trick Photography and Special Effects 2 0 Now Online High Speed Photography with Splashes Flashes and a Fish Tank Photography Tutorial Photoshop CS5 Surreal Portrait Photo Manipulation Advanced Tutorial Orbs Long Exposure Light Painting Photography

    sort of light behind them Blue glow sticks were used in this example This was a long exposure of Christmas tree lights It was a one second exposure The reason why the lines look so straight is because the camera was jerked in a fast motion These are called physiograms Simply attach Maglight to a string and let it hang from the ceiling turn off all the lights take a long exposure and give the LED a little tap When the long exposure is complete this is what it will look like Again LEDs are just great You can trace objects with them just like you can with sparklers I used the finger LEDs in this example You can also make flash stencils Just put cardboard in front of your flash with a design cut out in it and you re ready to go If you are interested in incorporating long exposure effects and light painting into your night photography I would highly recommend Night Photography Light Painting by Brent Pearson especially if you are light painting landscapes Long Exposures During Day You can also create long exposures of landscapes during they DAY by using an extremely dark filter that attaches to the front of your lens The filter you can use is a B W filter an ND400 filter I d recommend this one or even an Infrared filter Taking long exposures during the day is useful for creating foggy ghostly seascapes blurring clouds blurring water and waterfalls and even removing people from a scene if they are constantly moving Long exposures are excellent for moving ocean waters splashing against rocks The longer exposure the more misty the water will looks A lot of people use an ND400 Filter for long exposures during the day It allows 30 second exposure times Long exposures of waterfalls create that smooth soothing effect Silver Falls Oregon This looks blue and white because it was taken with an Infrared Filter attached to my camera lens Manual blend of 2 exposures 20 seconds for the water and 5 seconds for the sky The long exposure is made possible by the use of a ND400 filter Star Trails These are a great challenge and the best part is you don t know what the photograph will look like until after you ve taken it You will need to have your camera on a tripod manually focus to infinite use the widest aperture you can and a low ISO If you want to take 20 minute long exposure you will need to buy a cable release made for your specific DSLR However taking super long exposures can cause a lot of noise in images An alternative wave 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

    files on the card There is no option to view the pictures in whatever orientation your camera is in It s either ROTATE TALL or not You cannot install different sized crystals inside of the camera body that are in front of the sensor to bend light in certain artistic ways this one is more of a joke than not although having the ability to easily swap the Internal Cut Filters would be awesome and silly cameras like the Nikon D810A wouldn t need to exist You cannot auto focus the lens from Focus Point A to Focus Point B while it is taking an exposure The exposure compensation only goes up or down to a maximum of five stops What if you wanted to set it over 5 Why limit everything using arbitrary numbers I like that it stops at 5 because if I want to quickly move it up or down as much as possible I know that I can just keep rotating the dial until it stops at 5 There should be an option in the menu to change the maximum number however You cannot easily select groups of images to be deleted simultaneously You cannot quickly create a playlist of certain images videos you want to play while in sideshow mode You cannot resize images to smaller sizes This feature was available in older models The repeating flash mode is limited to 1HZ to 50HZ It s very possible to program the camera to be 5HZ There is an option that allows you to trim movie clips from the beginning and another option to trim movie clips from the end however if you wanted to do both at the same time there is no option available You have to trim the beginning which makes a new copy of the file then trim the end of that copy which makes another copy In the end you have 3 copies You cannot create a movie file of an exposure being recorded in real time You cannot set the shutter speed to whatever you want when recording video You cannot set the ISO number to whatever you want when recording video You cannot set custom values for each flash burst in the Flash Burst mode You can t watch videos in slideshow mode The AGC Audio Gain Control is horrible People have been complaining all over the internet about their frustration of it not being able to switch the AGC to manual You can t take images in any size you want Cameras offer Small Medium and Large image sizes for JPEG and sometimes with RAW The image size should be able to be customized to any dimension you want with any filetype including RAW With my 36 megapixel D810A DSLR I want to have the ability to make the images Extra Small Each pixel on the sensor cannot have its own dedicated ISO number Depending on how advanced they made this feature this could potentially completely revolutionize HDR

    to detect that there is a battery grip attached You can t write your own programs for the camera because the firmware is not open source The majority of these problems almost all of them would be solvable if it was You cannot view non Nikon content in camera on the LCD screen All images and videos must be taken by a Nikon camera in order to be played back in camera It can t meter beyond 30 seconds It can t blend multiple exposures in certain useful ways It only can do whole number fps integers 4fps 5fps etc and is unable to use more flexible values such as 4 2 fps or 4 3fps for example It can t do 2 fps and then 3 fps and then loop that pattern You cannot bracket images with user customized integers values The exposure bracketing only allows up to a maximum of 9 stops The self timer only has 2 5 10 or 20 seconds available for customization What if I wanted 8 5 seconds What if I wanted 40 seconds or 8 2 hours The exposure delay mode can only be set to 1 second What if I wanted it longer You cannot properly set the white balance in camera for infrared photography or ultraviolet photography This feature was available in some very old models like the Nikon D50 especially with JPEGs Why is it gone The WB is stuck at 1 000 10 000k Adobe should expand their white balance values in their software as well then we wouldn t have to go out of our way to make custom DNG profiles every time we take an IR image using a new camera The file naming system is limited It allows only three characters an underscore and then the numbers 0001 9999 What if I wanted the file name to have an unlimited amount of characters at the beginning or end and then the file number for example 00005356342 as you can see it can go past 9999 without being reset to 0001 for no reason and then another set of characters and then a custom variable or two such as the date or camera serial model number Having such as system would mean every file would have a unique file name so there would no duplicates at all in your entire library of 100 000 images The Active folder function folder naming is limited Yet again it only allows three numbers to be inserted into the folder name and then a D300S is stuck at the end of the folder name What if I wanted an unlimited amount of customizable numbers AND letters AND the ability to insert metadata variables time date location serial no camera model iso number etc There is no live histogram The live horizon only meters the x axis not the y axis The BULB mode is limited It lets the photographer take an exposure while their finger is pressed on the shutter but if they wanted to push the shutter once to activate the exposure and then once again to stop the exposure they wouldn t be able to do that without buying a cable release or remote EV Exp and ISO is adjustable only in 1 3 or 1 2 increments Accurate exposure times are limited For example you cannot set it to 23 seconds It s either 20 or 25 It only can write files to be in horizontal orientation It can write in the EXIF data that it needs rotating but if you wanted to write the actual file dimensions in vertical orientation its is impossible It s incapable of auto focus bracketing The AF Assist lamp doesn t always turn on when it s dark and furthermore there is no option to turn on the AF Assist lamp at your desire It is a waste considering how bright and useful the lamp is It would be convenient for the user to have the ability to assign a button that turns on the AF Lamp so you can see in the dark The Interval Time Shooting mode is limited There is no way to tell how large the file size is for any of the files on the card There is no option to view the pictures in whatever orientation your camera is in It s either ROTATE TALL or not You cannot install different sized crystals inside of the camera body that are in front of the sensor to bend light in certain artistic ways this one is more of a joke than not although having the ability to easily swap the Internal Cut Filters would be awesome and silly cameras like the Nikon D810A wouldn t need to exist You cannot auto focus the lens from Focus Point A to Focus Point B while it is taking an exposure The exposure compensation only goes up or down to a maximum of five stops What if you wanted to set it over 5 Why limit everything using arbitrary numbers I like that it stops at 5 because if I want to quickly move it up or down as much as possible I know that I can just keep rotating the dial until it stops at 5 There should be an option in the menu to change the maximum number however You cannot easily select groups of images to be deleted simultaneously You cannot quickly create a playlist of certain images videos you want to play while in sideshow mode You cannot resize images to smaller sizes This feature was available in older models The repeating flash mode is limited to 1HZ to 50HZ It s very possible to program the camera to be 5HZ There is an option that allows you to trim movie clips from the beginning and another option to trim movie clips from the end however if you wanted to do both at the same time there is no option available You have to trim
