Long Exposure

This week we learnt about the types of photographs you can take with a long exposure. A long exposure means the camera basically keeps taking the photograph (absorbing what it sees) for a longer period of time. This means moving objects blur as they travel through the photograph.

With a little help from a tripod I managed to take these photos of traffic in Bath city centre. The first photograph is of a moving double decker bus, shot with a 1 second exposure. The second is of 2 buses facing each other at a zebra crossing, shot over 4 seconds.
