Nikon Assignment: Time in Motion

This assignment is now closed.


Delve into the wonders of long exposure photography and capture time in motion in a single shot.

Reducing your camera’s shutter speed can transform simple activities and settings into a fantastic world of pure imagination.

Balancing stationary and moving images, as well as light sources, can warp time and create static motion in a still image – from silky smooth water ripples to light trails from cars winding through city streets at night.
