Challenge – “Long Exposure”

27 October 2023 @ 19:00

The Online Challenge brief for October is as follows:

Theme – Long Exposure

Entries for this theme will depict images that fall under the following description.

To define the theme, Long-exposure photography is a technique that involves capturing a single image over an extended period of time. By dialling in a shutter speed that lasts 1/30s, 1s, 10s, or even an hour, it’s possible to render moving subjects as beautiful blurs while keeping stationary subjects tack-sharp. Although it may sound complex, the theory behind long-exposure images is actually fairly simple. By controlling the amount of time the camera sensor “views” the scene, stationary subjects remain the same irrespective of the shutter speed, while subjects in motion start to reveal more movement as the exposure time increases. This enables us to create a wonderful contrast between sharpness and blur, producing images that overflow with senses of dreams and reality combined.

Watch out for more infomration about the scheduling of a workshop on this topic.
