Before I understood how photography worked, I was always intrigued by light trails in images. I never understood how that happened and this particular image was captured when I decided I would try and capture some light trails. I set up my #Gopro
, made sure the settings were correct and waited but my timing was off and the shots were not great. I continued to wait. After about an hour of trying and experimenting, I got the shot I was looking for. It was like magic to me. The lights seemed to float in mid air. I was hooked. This was something that mystified me for a long time and, I had managed to get it right. What was so mesmerizing for me was that the image I saw on my LCD screen was not what I saw in real life. The Gopro had managed to capture a scene that my eyes could not capture in the same way. This seemed amazing to me. I soon realized that the camera was able to “see” things differently to the way my eyes saw them. I spent many nights trying to capture light trails in various locations. I was also doing lots of reading and research and came across a technique called long exposures. This too was amazing. It had the ability to alter a scene in such away that it looked totally different to the way our eyes normally see it. Again I was hooked and still, to this day, long exposures and light trails are some of my favourite techniques in photography. Long exposure photography and light trails have similar techniques, it is the subject matter that differs.
P.S : my very first long exposure image captured using a #gopro
