PADUCAH, KY – Photography Art Paducah 2017/2018… this is a small collection of photographs taken in historic downtown Paducah, KY.
The colorful streaks area created with car lights. I got this effect by setting my exposure times around 2 to 6 seconds, my ISO at 50 and my aperture at F3.5. The editing software used was Photoshop.
You can get this effect on phones if it allows you to set exposure times. But you will need a tripod or something that can keep your phone perfectly still.
Phones will need to use the same settings as hand-held cameras as well. These settings are a good baseline to start with: Exp 2-6 sec, ISO 50-200, F3.5 or lower.
Photography Art Defined:
Known also as “photographic art”, “artistic photography” and so on, the term “fine art photography” has no universally agreed meaning or definition: rather, it refers to an imprecise category of photographs, created in accordance with the creative vision of the cameraman.

The photos below were created with normal shots, long exposures and HDR bracketing.
