Train Lights

Slow shutter speeds can be used when you wish to gain a sense if movement or blurring of the image. In the image of the train above, the shutter speed was several seconds long, allowing the lights of the train to move across the image.

It is very advisable when using slow shutter speeds to give some support to the camera. For shutter speeds down to around 1/8 second a monopod can be used to stabilise the camera but with slower shutter speeds it is much better to use a tripod and some type of cable or remote release to ensure there is no camera movement..
