Photo Challenge: Long Exposure

Posted by — 25 Jun 2008

Prop your camera up, open the shutter, and play! Our latest photo challenge, Long Exposure is all about fun and experimentation, where the lights blur the subject and the unexpected is exposed. Whether it's a long exposure shot of a moving crowd, the spinning stars at night, or your best painting with light photo, we want to see it!

The Long Exposure Photo Challenge is sponsored and guest-judged by Lomography and the top three winners will receive one of the new special edition Colorsplash Chakra cameras, designed by Staple Design, along with a signed copy of the Colorsplash Chakra book!


Some starter tips— use a tripod to avoid camera shake, and try some test shots at 10, 20, or 30 seconds. But there's no right way, so show us how you shoot, and explain your method in the photo description. This photo challenge ends July 2nd, which is a short time from now! Here are a few photos to help guide your creative process:
