Capturing Time in Photography

A long exposure can be used in photography to capture the effect of time on an image, moving objects such as clouds and water will create an almost unpredictable abstract effect. Long exposures can be used to remove unwanted detail from an image smoothing details that might distract the viewer from what you want them to see.

A short exposure on the other hand captures an instant of time, something that happened on a fraction of a second.

A good way to capture time in a photo is to combine both a short and a long exposure.
