Long Exposure Part 4 (Man Made Objects)

Just like with the past three parts of this session there will be four different photos that I took, I will tell you the settings that I shot with, and finally I will give you some tips and tricks to help you farther.


This is a photo of a Chevy Silverado. My settings were ISO 400, aperture 5.6, and shutter speed 0.5 (half) a second. I actually didn’t use a tripod for this shot, so if you want to do that too you can but you need a lot of skill. As you can see there is a lot of bumpiness in the photo which is from shooting without the tripod.


These are the break lights of cars. My settings were ISO 400, aperture 5.6, and shutter speed 0.5 (half) a second. This is like the photo of the fall tree in Long Exposures Part 2 (Landscapes) (http://maxweakley.com/long-exposure-part-2-landscapes/). All you do is set your camera to a long exposure and zoom out, I call it the “Light Speed Effect.”


This is a photo of a school carnival that happened last year. The settings were ISO 200, aperture 6.3, and shutter speed 2.5 seconds. The photo is so clear because I used a tripod, the ferris wheel looks solid because of the speed that it is turning, and the missing spots of light on the ferris wheel are from broken or burnt out lights.


This is a photo of my Christmas tree. The settings were ISO 100, aperture 5.6, and shutter speed 1.3 seconds. This is similar to panning with a moving object, except the fact that the lights aren’t moving so you get streaks of light.
