Project Description

Share a light trails shot of your own with us!  

To get a night trails photo, all you need is to out your camera on a tripod, and set your exposure time to between 5 and 10 seconds - long enough for the traffic headlights and bus lights to register as trails of light through your shot!

Shoot several different shots as different vehicles move through your shot without moving your tripod at all, and you'll have the basic images to follow along with this class using your own images!
