I have recent­ly read an arti­cle on Improve Pho­tog­ra­phy on how some­times a very long shut­ter speed does not equal to blur pic­ture due to move­ments.

When I was doing my club shoots, I often do not go faster than 1/3s of shut­ter speed. Par­tial­ly it was due to hard­ware lim­i­ta­tion and sec­ond­ly is because I love the effect of a long expo­sure. Long expo­sure gives a creamy light effect when used under the cor­rect con­di­tion.I had a very ancient hard­ware. Some­thing that I do not mind drop­ping, and spilled with alco­hol. It was a rugged cam­era that does its job. In an exchange with that, ISO noise is abun­dance, which is why I often stay below ISO400.
