Fun with long exposures

The same evening I took the triptych portraits, I also took a few photographs of the show.  I purposely brought my tripod with me to see what interesting shots I could get using long exposures, keeping the ISO as low as possible to retain as much detail as possible.  The flip side to this is that the shutter speed is going to be a lot slower, especially in a dimly lit room, so movement is going to be captured very easily, giving you ghostly kind of images.  I also played with the zoom lens while the shutter was open, giving pretty cool zoom effects which were exaggerated by the lighting in the room.  Fun fun fun…
