Long Exposure Photographs are when you set the shutter speed on the camera for a longer time than normal. With the camera lens open for longer it means you can catch more in an image then you normally would. This has been used to photograph cars racing past at night leaving a trail from the lights of the cars glowing in the night sky. This also can be called painting with light. This has been used to an advantage to trick the eye in a photograph, how it is done is simply by using a light or torch and shinning it and literally ‘Paint’ with the light just like a painting. Also it it good for time-lapse photos such as the starts moving but this exposure would last for hours. Long exposures are great to do at night as images in the day tend to blur and don’t look as good
