Fun With Long Exposures and a Tripod

Been having a lot of fun with taking longer exposure images with my vintage tripod. A tripod is necessary in order to capture the light designs while the camera is actually shooting the image. Any movement on the main subject’s part will result in a blur effect. Basically these images were taken by lowering the ISO to the lowest setting on my camera, then extending the exposure time. I generally keep most of the image in focus when shooting shots like these so the aperture is set to 3.2.
