Slow Shutter Speed Photography
4 months ago

Hello,

I tried to do some photography this evening of cars' headlights with a slow shutter speed around 4-10 seconds. However, it didn't work.

Is 4-10 seconds too fast? Do I need to do closer to 30 seconds or even longer? I also seemed to have a problem with the street lights. Because the shutter was open for so long, the street lights were actually too much light.

Any advice?
