    Nice topic but... I'm going to have a big problem in this. I've never really taken any long exposure shots.. :(

    Then this is perfect for you. Good chance to push your skills and learn. Long exposure isn't that hard, as long as you have a tripod.

    Ive taken long exposure with camera lens rested on a stubby holder and many other objects ( car roofs / bar stools etc ). Just set it to Self timer so the photo starts in 10 seconds.

    If you have Mirror lockup ( generally only on DSLRs ) you should use that also. I'm usually lazy and dont bother !!

    I hate to cause confusion but due to a bit of a mixup the theme is changing, or more accurately should have been:

    Theme "10 Seconds".

    Original post updated.

    Cheers,

    Hmm, can we have the old one back.

    Oh well more of a challenge i guess, definitely requires lateral thinking ..

    Sure you do. Put your camera on a "table tripod" or a "bollard tripod" or "roof of your car tripod". Don't be fooled into thinking you need a fancy store bought tripod to take a long exposure.

    Here is a 3.2 second exposure I took on a "Handrail tripod"

    Damn you! I had an awesome idea for long exposure, but it only required 1 second or so, none of this 10 second stuff ;(

    You dont have to literally have a 10 second exposure... think laterally

    Yeah, it doesn't even need to be a long exposure. I've got an idea or two that would be your usual 1/60th or so.
