One of the biggest mistakes any photographer can make is to assume that long exposure is only something to attempt when capturing landscapes.
Long exposure is not confined to a specific genre but is a compelling way of capturing motion in a static image via our exposure setting.
I remember the first time I travelled to Madrid, I was absolutely fascinated with the city, the architecture (the food) and of course, the people; the endless rivers of people flowing down the streets of Madrid during winter.
I remember being fascinated with certain photographs from Henri Cartier-Bresson that depicted motion in a beautiful way, therefore I decided to capture people with slow shutter speed settings.
But there was a big problem because I wanted to travel light, I left my robust tripod back home, and I needed to find a sturdy solution, fast.
