Light trails - Dreamstime
We all love to take shots of buildings by night... especially when the building is lit. Why not add something special to that picture?
Here's a simple advice: Use a ND8 or higher filter. This filter allows you to expose longer. Exposing longer allows you to capture some light trails. Here are a few example photographs:
Wait until the cars are moving, observe the pattern, use a tripod and a remote shutter device. Also look for your safety, don't get exposed in an unsafe place where a car can hit you. If there is the angle, you can leave only the camera and you can take a few steps back to ensure your safety!
Choose a venue that is circulated by buses and you will have the lights all over the photograph. The light stops of buses are higher than the most vehicles.
Thank you for reading this and I can't wait for your feed back!
