Trails of light

NPhoto - - Spe­cial Fea­ture -

The long ex­po­sures needed at night might seem like an in­con­ve­nience, but you can use them to your ad­van­tage. In the pic­ture on the left, the only il­lu­mi­na­tion was the sparkler, and this meant we needed a long ex­po­sure of 15 sec­onds – but this gave us time to move the sparkler and cre­ate this lu­mi­nous out­line. It would be im­pos­si­ble to do this in any of the cam­era’s auto modes be­cause its light me­ter would not be able to pro­duce a sen­si­ble me­ter read­ing and ex­po­sure time.
