20 Awesome Examples Of Long Exposure Photography

Here are 20 awesome examples of long exposure photography which employs a very slow shutter speed (one of the pillars of exposure). Generally, slow shutter speed finds its applications in capturing the creative images like beautiful motion blurs, striking star trails, smooth, soothing moving waters and sometimes the dramatic effects of the moving clouds. The slower shutter speeds allow you to open the shutter for a longer duration which in turn gives you an opportunity to capture the motion and movement on the photographic frame. But here we are not freezing the motion, instead we are employing the motion blurs for some creative effects like capturing the movement of water (in form of rains, waterfalls, seascapes, etc), photographing the rapid bursts of fireworks and creating beautiful imagery of city lights. Notice the activities in the scene.
