The latest Lumia Challenge is looking for long exposures

Lumia 950 Mozo Brown Leather 15

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.
