Long-exposure photography by experts

Long exposure photo is when the camera’s image sensor was exposed to light for a longer period of time than usual. Traditionally this technique of is used for taking images at night, since the light is low, the lens is exposed the light longer, hence pictures become clear. But this technique also adds kind of a special effect to the photos. Below are a few examples:

driving is fun (it pays well too!)

Andrew Stawarz

Andrew Stawarz is a British photographer who takes stunning long exposure photos of urban scenes in England. Using a Nikon D300, Stawarz creates eerie, colorful images that manage to make scenes like power plants and control towers undeniably beautiful.

Sara Heinrichs

In Sara Heinrichs’ long-exposure photo of a ride at a carnival, the spinning wheel in its hues of pink, green, blue and yellow almost looks like a UFO made of candy. Heinrichs also uses the long exposure technique to create an image with ghostly silhouettes against an ocean sunset background. She stood in front of the camera and held each pose for about five seconds during the 25-second exposure.


The work of a British photographer known only as MSH* manages to capture the frenetic energy of London yet somehow imbibe it with a magical, fluid, slow-motion feel. These urban images are long exposures taken with a Nikon D50 and are taken from viewpoints that make you feel as if you’re a part of the action
