Beautiful Long Exposure Photos of Cityscapes Taken with the Sprocket Rocket

2014-01-15 2

The city makes for a perfect subject for those lovely long exposure shots come nighttime, don’t you think?

The often bleak-looking city with its imposing structures turns into something magnificent-looking, with its bright lights and all, when the sun goes down. Indeed, the city comes alive, providing us with awesome sights we don’t see in any other time of the day.

The photos in this gallery were taken by members of our community with their *Sprocket Rocket cameras*. Among its features is the Bulb function, which allows you to easily take long exposure shots by holding the shutter open for as long as you’d like. Moreover, the unique sprocket holes exposed in each photograph add a cool, unique touch to them.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
