A sad day, I completely missed out on the supermoon rising over the weekend. I was really looking forward to getting some of those “horizon” shots with a telephoto in order to get that enlarged compression look. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be this year.
Instead, I took advantage of the situation and did some light trails. These, however, turned out okay in my book. First time I’ve ever tried doing these kinds of shots. Very time-consuming, but the effect is something to marvel at. Enjoy!
And as always, have a great one. 😀
Please explain in very simple terms what night trails means.
*light* trails are the result of closing the aperture of your lens down at night, while taking a picture with a very long (in these cases 30 second) exposure, at a low ISO. Tail-lights from cars appear as lines, while the cars are invisible, since they themselves do not give off any light.
I enjoyed, especially the two in the middle.
Thanks Ben, was enjoyable capturing them as well. 🙂
can you explain how the first photo was shot, thnx
Tripod, f/8, ISO 100, 30 second exposure, tweaking of the highlights and blacks in post-processing to bring out the tail lights and take away from the ground.
