What is a long exposure shot?


I have seen [this](https://www.reddit.com/r/interestingasfuck/comments/hfni8c/long_exposure_shots_can_smooth_out_ripples/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share) about a dozen times on r/pics but don’t understand how it works.

So a regular camera opens its ‘eye’ for a split second, and captures the light at that time to create a photo.

Long exposure means that you take in light over a period of time to create an effect, usually one that focuses on a still target while all of the movement around it gets smoothed out.
