Take a photograph in which the exposure is 30 seconds or longer...

;)

[[[Yes, I know that not everyone will be able to participate based on varying camera technology. But I still think this would be a superb challenge.]]]

I think this would be a good challenge however I feel it should be a bonus challenge rather than the main challenge of the week.

I wouild be more tempted to use 5 seconds as a minimum. 30 seconds is way long for many things. Plus there are a lot more cameras that can do at least 5 seconds than cameras that can do 30.

Also should the challenge focus on using long exposure in a low light situation, or on using it to illustrate motion in the subject

Site Council will probably determine the best long exposure time...

Upto the photographer. Someone might do an over-exposed small aperture shot to show motion, or a long bulb astrophotography shot...or perhaps an infrared shot. Perhaps someone will do a manual shot in the dark with strob lighting to show multiple instances of said subject.

I don't want to set any other requirements beyond "long exposure" this way we'll have a good diversity but a common factor.

Works for me.

Even one second can be considered a long exposure.

One second I think would be too short....perhaps the 5 seconds is good. But I don't think it should be too much less than that.

That sounds like a pretty good challenge. I bet you would get a funky mix of deliberate motion, skyline shots, strobe effects, etc. Lots of creative possibilities.

I agree....

I wonder if people will do odd things like an open shutter but manually cover the lens of a clock to have a photo depicting multiple positions of the hands....(if possible)

But hey...I definitely would like to see the results...

I have a feeling most of the "night" entries are creeping up to 30 second exposures.

Not all cameras can take a long exposure.

True....

But nothing states you have to be able to enter EVERY challenge. People will complain, just like they complained about not owning a pet for the pet challenge.

*shrug*

Does that mean we shouldn't do the challenge? there are more than enough "other" challenges for people to compete in if they can't do more than a 5 second shot.

my camera can only do a 16 second maximum exposure. But I would love to try.
06/03/2005 05:23:12 PM · #13
I would love to see this as a 24 hour or 48 hour challenge.

wait...it's a long exposure...should this be a 10-day challenge?

*LOL*
