Long Shutter Photography Experiment

My main creative outlet has most often been video. It’s in my job title at Stevenson University “Videographer/Editor”. But I also do a great deal of photography. I have done some limited long shutter experiments in the past. If you want to see a shoot I did to experiment take a look at this album of work done at a Art Gallery opening at Stevenson called Landscape and Memory.
Tonight, I played around with some long shutter (or slow shutter) exposures with my family so I thought I’d share a few photos. They’re just fun. I’m trying to keep up the creativity. I’d love to see some of your slow shutter experiments if you want to share a link in the comment section below. Enjoy!

Doing vertical zig zags and stuff. Looks like it’s a stage with the reflection on the carpet.

Fun evening activity with the kids if anything else. I had my shutter exposure set to 15 seconds with and ISO of 250 and an f-stop of 11 on my Canon 60D. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions in the comment section below. Thanks for reading!
