Get down low

NPhoto - - The Apprentice -

When pho­tograph­ing light trails, don’t stand too far back like in this shot. Get up close and get down low, so that your cam­era is level with the head­lights or tail-lights of pass­ing ve­hi­cles. A wide-an­gle lens will ac­cen­tu­ate the trails and a shut­ter speed of four to five sec­onds will keep the trails de­fined and bright. It’s im­por­tant to fill the frame though, so try to time the shot so the light trails travel the en­tire width of the frame.
