Day 6 – Long Exposures in Oberlin

Last night around 8:30, I decided to drive down to Oberlin and take a few long exposures. This is kind of new ground for me since the only type of long exposures I have done are the Illum light art photos. Even though it was pretty cold and kind of windy, I stayed out for almost three hours. Here are two of the multiple shots that I took. (Click on the photos to view larger.)


The top photo is a shot of trees with red berries and lights in them with cars driving by on the edge of SR 58. The bottom photo is a zoom-shot of the Apollo Theatre’s neon sign. This is the first time I have tried zooming during a long exposure. I just opened the shutter, waited a second, zoomed, waited a second, zoomed, etc. I believe I did this 8 times. I am pleased with how it came out, since I have never done that before. There is definitely some room for improvement, though. In the future I am going to do some tests to see if I can work that into light graffiti. I have a few ideas of what I can do.
