Extended Exposure for Camera

About: I am an engineering student and instructable is my past time. I draw , paint and like to innovate ;)

Exposure can be defined as the amount of light per unit area. In photography exposure refers to the time the shutter opens to let the light into the lens.

As the amount of time increases the amount of incoming light also increases.

So if we increase the exposure, we can in short take a slow motion of a moving image. This is very commonly used in images which show vehicles moving in a highway.

This technique can be exploited in many ways:

The image I captured shows an exposure time to 15 seconds, and depicts how the firestick falls like a waterfall, you can come up with many more symbols, figures and objects.

Step 1: Camera Settings

1. Take image of flowing water in which you can show the flow of water. An exposure time of about 10-20 seconds is sufficient for flowing water photography.

Step 2: Innovate Your Image

2. Innovative ways like making patterns in the air using (fireworks) flowing things and then leaving an imprint later.

Step 3: Finalize

The image I captured shows an exposure time to 15 seconds, and depicts how the firestick falls like a waterfall, you can come up with many more symbols, figures and objects.

    Due to some recent changes on the site, we are no longer able to publish stand-alone videos and other forms of incomplete posts. In order to be published live on the site, Instructables must consist of the following things:

    - Multiple steps showing how you made your project

    - Written instructions in each step

    - Your own original images

    Beyond making your Instructable simply publishable, this guide (https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Create-a-Feature-Worthy-Instructable/) explains what is required to have your Instructables featured by our site editors. It’s very helpful, and definitely worth checking out.

    We would love to review your project again after you have made the necessary edits, and we will publish your project if it is eligible.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask right here or send us an email at service@instructables.com.
