This is what a US Army AH-64 Apache attack helicopter looks like from a distance as it strafes the night sky: A graceful curve of light with only arcs of sparks to reveal that it’s actually spewing ammunition.
Navy photographer Eric C. Burgett pays homage to a classic 1949 Life magazine photoseries in this gorgeous shot of an MV-22 Osprey taking off from the Navy’s amphibious assault ship USS Boxer.
There’s something magical about traveling alone. Yes, there are more risks involved, but it pays dividends in nimbleness. Eventually, though, you get tired of talking to yourself (or your GoPro), you have trouble following your audiobook, and you’ve been through all of your pre-downloaded music. Having an ally on your…
Long exposure photos of cars at night look like comets shooting down the highway. And for this week’s Shooting Challenge, you captured them in all of their stellar glory.
It’s one of the coolest, simple effects in photography. A car zooms by in the night. You capture it looking like Tron. For this week’s Shooting Challenge, capture long, luxurious exposure of cars at night.
Does this video remind you of being drunk, dizzy, or in some woozy dream-state? Whatever feeling it conjers, you've definitely never seen animated photos like this before.
This font, called Phone Streak, might not be the most practical typeface in the world, but it was probably the most fun to create—because it was put together by capturing long exposures of an iPhone being swept through the air.
I'm such a wild sleeper that sometimes I wake up in the most awkward of positions. Face planted, facing the wrong direction, diagonal, on the completely other side—you name it, I've woken up in it. I was always wanted to know my movement patterns. Photographer Paul Schneggenburger created a photography series that…
The human figure is one of the most classic motifs in art. For this week's Shooting Challenge, you used modern camera equipment to reimagine shape and movement. The results are fantastic.
We already know that one long exposure photo can be incredible. But what if you stack multiple long exposures, combining their perspectives in Photoshop? You cover more time, you can see more light. And the effect is remarkable.
You ever see a photo that looks like it's raining sparks? It was probably made through a trick with steel wool. And for this week's Shooting Challenge, you can try the technique yourself, BUT CAREFULLY, AND AT YOUR OWN RISK!
The world is always spinning. But what if we could stop, just for a moment, and let it all wash over us? These 32 long exposure photographs from this week's Shooting Challenge consider the possibilities.
We're surrounded by motion everywhere we go. Yet cameras capture still images, single moments. For this week's Shooting Challenge, you'll capture a person frozen inside a bustling, kinetic world.
Back in the olden days of photography, big box cameras had slow as snails shutters so it was nearly impossible to get kids to sit still for the duration of the long exposure. If they moved, the pictures would be blurry! So what was the old photog solution? Why let's have their mothers hide under blankets and blend…
New Year's Eve is a bit fuzzy more most of us, so it's completely appropriate that, for this week's Shooting Challenge, Gizmodo photographers captured blurry, long exposure photographs.
New Year's Eve is this weekend, meaning that most of us are attending parties. For this week's Shooting Challenge, I want you to capture that party...in a really long exposure. 15 seconds to 30 minutes.
Welcome to the world of "light painting." It begins in darkness, and then over the course of an hour or hours, a photographer illuminates small portions of his or her subject, and combines the images in post to create this.
What kid didn't capture fireflies in a jar, hopelessly attempting to keep them alive by tossing in a few torn blades of grass? For this week's Shooting Challenge, you'll capture fireflies again, but this time, on camera.
Now that we all download or stream, don't you miss record (or CD) labels and sleeves? Sure, you can turn the visualizer on on iTunes or *cough* WinAmp but it's no match for trancing out to the spinning label of a record.
