Long exposures

Ghosts of games past

I love making long exposures that contain movement. I was in Denver for the NSDL in 2005 and we had gone out to try the local beer and play some pool. This was a great place for long exposures, dark, great warm colors, interesting features (in this case repeating elements in long lines - another angle), and lots of movement. The people moving about the tables become ghosts in the photo. I tried this at 15 seconds and it was too long, people were not in one place long enough to render a trace, and shorter made the people too "solid."
