Taking long exposures really allows us to express creative style and this set of photos really sets a mood of tempo that goes perfect with the bright blue lighting of Severance Hall. The trails are created by cars passing by as we leave the shutter open for several seconds. Interested in more long exposures? Check out this blog post of Ohio City!
