New Year’s Eve Party Long Exposures

Between news about the latest gadgets and tech, Gizmodo is known for hosting some really creative shooting challenges for amateur and professional photographers alike. As seasons and trends change, so do the challenges. Since New Year’s Eve is a celebration of light in places all around the world, it only seemed natural that editors would issue forth a challenge to photographers who happen to be celebrating. The challenge, fittingly enough, involved a technique that became pretty popular during 2011. Photographers were challenged to capture the evening using the long exposure method, for 15 seconds to 30 minutes.
