EX­PERT INSIGHT Re­veal the invisible

NPhoto - - The Apprentice -

Joe says… A 30-sec­ond ex­po­sure can re­veal a scene which you can’t see with the naked eye. Some­times a night-time cityscape is too dark to really see any­thing, but a long ex­po­sure bright­ens ev­ery­thing. Even if you can’t make out the shot you want, use your com­po­si­tional rules and try tak­ing a photo any­way, es­pe­cially if there’s still some light in the sky. You won’t be able to tell what you have un­til you’ve cap­tured it. A long ex­po­sure will also smooth out any rip­ples in wa­ter, giv­ing it a sheer, glass-like qual­ity.
