The Mysteries Of Long Exposure
Expand Your Image Imagination

by Art Rosch

The human eye sees light in the moment. Film or sensors accumulate light through an entire exposure, as if it were a memory. Photons continue making impressions wherever they land on the sensor or film. Moving objects leave a distended, time-lapse image of themselves.

Exposure Tips
Sunsets And Sky
by George Schaub

There’s something magical happening in the sky all the time—if we only bother to look. Whether it’s sunrise, sunset, or a front passing through, the sky offers an amazing diversity of light, color, and subject matter. However, photographs of the sky sometimes disappoint—they might come out too light, too dark, or simply don’t communicate the glory that inspired you to raise your camera in the first place.
