24 Times Long Exposure Photography Resulted in Something Magical

Unlike your conventional photo that’s taken when a cameras shutter opens and then closes again, long exposure photography relies on the shutter being open that little bit longer – resulting in the magic you see below. That magic lies in the movement, often light in this case, that’s captured when the shutter is open for so long – capturing a passing moment in time that’s forever frozen in photographic form. Below is a roundup of long exposure in action, capturing anything from fireflies in a jaw to the moment a firework takes off. They’re all moments that otherwise go unnoticed in our busy day-to-day lives and that’s what makes them so amazing.
