There are few photographic techniques that have captured the imagination of landscape photographers like long exposure photography. The ability to take an ordinary scene and give it a unique and even otherworldly feel is addictive.

There are many ways to create long exposure photos, from using neutral density filters or shooting in low light, to stacking multiple exposures in photoshop. Whichever technique you use to create the final images, they can be stunning.

The technique works well wherever there are both moving and stationary elements within the scene. It works particularly well with landscape, seascape, and cityscape photography. Leaving the shutter open allows the moving elements to blur. All you need to get started taking long exposure photos isa camera and a tripod.

Here are 13 examples of my own long exposure photos that I’ve created over the last few years. I hope you enjoy them, and if you haven’t tried it for yourself, may they inspire you to give long exposure photography a try.
