Falls at Seoraksan
Falls at Seoraksan – Republic of Korea
Anything longer than a shutter speed of 1 second is considered long exposure photography. This capture on film was made way before there were digital cameras with metadata attached to the files and I did not take copious notes back in the day, but I can tell it’s a 4-5 sec. shutter speed. When there is water in motion such as this falls, the long exposure blurs it giving the water a silky smooth look. To achieve this effect, the camera must be mounted on a tripod. If not, everything in the frame will be blurred, not just the water.
