Swift cars in dark boulevards, a merry-go-round in an amusement park, a fire dancer’s sparkling poi: These are some quick and lovely sights that can be captured by slow shutter speed or long exposure. Utilizing slow shutter speed photography makes a static photodynamic. Simply put, it captures the splendor of motion.
The long exposure technique can be utilized in two ways: It can freeze motion to make all the aspects in the photo crisp, and it can also be used to blur motion. Yes, that’s right, a blurry picture. A blurry effect can actually add an artistic spice to a photo. The slow shutter speed technique may seem technical but with a little practice, beginners can also have fun with this technique.
Some cameras provide a shutter priority mode, in which the camera automatically adjusts aperture after the user sets a shutter time. For Canon, it can be set to Tv while it is the S setting in Nikon cameras. The user can set a very slow shutter speed (around 10 to 30 seconds) to seize as much light as possible and to capture a cool motion blur. Using a tripod in this technique can be a great help. Also, “panning” the scenes can create a dreamy effect, especially in nature scenes such as waterfalls and ocean waves.
