And number 16 is…

‘long exposure’.

I have been experimenting with increasing the exposure time on my little point and shoot, but all I got was blurrrrrrr. So I turned to my new bible, PFAEC, and the first effect in the ‘Photographers’ section, daguerreotypes. The outline specifically mentions that these involved long exposures, leading to blurring of moving objects, like water.


I cheated again and used a holiday photo – Daguerre comes to Yorkshire. Still not got the border the way I want it, but I’m working on it…
