Nature is pretty amazing.

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Photography on Friday 10 May 2013

Samuel Burns is master of creating moody, minimalist landscapes. Using a large format camera, he chooses perfectly baren areas and shoots them using a long-exposure process to give them a more blurry, dream-like feel. Beginning with setting up his old-fashioned camera on a tripod, adjusting the dials, and triggering the shutter, the entire process may take up […]

London-based photographer and graphic designer Amandine Alessandra created an alphabet of long-exposure photographs.

Long-exposure photography by Xavier Nuez

Rebekah Rhoden Contributor

By Rebekah Rhoden in New Photography on Thursday 26 July 2012

The Alleys and Ruins series by Chicago-based photographer Xavier Nuez might be my favorite series of photographs. I’m a huge fan of long-exposure photography, and I love how Nuez’s photographs are dark and colorful at the same time. Nuez ventures out to high-risk locations to capture these amazing images, and he’s faced many dangerous encounters in the process. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase a print of my favorite image in the series, the lead image in this post, when Nuez was at Artisphere in Greenville, SC.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Saturday 12 May 2012

Japanese hobby photographer Tsuneaki Hiramatsu used time-lapse photography techniques to take numerous continuous long-exposure shots of fireflies at night in southern Okayama, and merged these shots afterwards in Photoshop. Now, if these pictures were taken over three years between 2008-2011, and the average lifespan of fireflies is a few weeks, we must be looking at several generations of fireflies in these images.

By Gerry Mak in New Photography on Thursday 13 August 2009

Gabriela Herman uses long exposures, dramatic lighting, and unusually wide angles to great effect, capturing a lot of motion as well as the spaces around her subjects. Even her relatively static images seem to have a kinetic feel to them, very much emphasizing the fleetingness of the moments she captures.

Aerial shots of London by night

Francis Andrews Reader Find

By Francis Andrews in New Trends on Tuesday 3 February 2009

For some reason it’s rare that you see London in this light. Nightscapes of big cities are usually reserved for New York and Tokyo, for example. Perhaps the comparatively scarce skyscrapers makes the city less photogenic in that respect. So photographer Jason Hawkes’ work is long overdue — he has really brought the city to […]
