Long Nights and Long Exposures

1

With the sun hiding away for the winter, let’s take advantage of these shorter days and whip out our cable releases for some long exposures. Lomography Chicago's workshop will be all about how to take a photo at night, and get some of the coolest effects that only analogue photography can bring!

Those long Summer days have been traded in for long Fall nights. There’s less daylight time but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun with your cameras! Learn how to take advantage of the B or Bulb setting on your camera and give that cable release of yours a whirl.

Have you ever wondered how to get light streaks at night? How to take a photo at night without it looking shaky and blurry? Bring your favorite camera with a cable release socket and let’s try some long night time exposures! If you’re interested in learning about night time photography but don’t have a camera with a cable release socket, don’t worry, we’ll have some loaners!

    12 Months, 12 Projects: February - Nighttime Traffic

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.

    Photographer Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
