Let’s face it, the cameras found on Lumia devices are awesome. The Nokia Lumia 1020 features a 41MP camera and the latest Lumia 950 features a 20 MP camera. Thanks to an advanced camera interface, you even can adjust the aperture and shutter speed with Lumia cameras. Keeping all of that in mind, Microsoft is now offering you a another Lumia Challenge: this time, to take creative long-exposure photos and win a Lumia 950!
For those who don’t know, long exposure is photography that works particularly well in lower-light settings, often used to show a beautiful array of light trails or motion blur. The perfect subject for a long exposure shot might be city traffic or flowing water – all of which can create mystifying effects straight from the camera on your Lumia.
To enter the challenge, you need to submit your long exposure shots by using the hashtag #LumiaChallenge and mention @LumiaVoices on any pictures you’d like to enter through either Twitter or Instagram. Submissions are open until February 16th and a short list of the best entries will be picked by the Lumia Voices team on February 17th. Full terms and conditions are available here.
The above are just a few shots for some inspiration. They come from Olivier Wong-Man-Kan, who provided an overview last year on how to create the perfect Lumia long-exposure photo.Further reading: Cameras, Contests, Lumia, Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, Microsoft, Photography
