The Art of Photography - Jaime Ibarra (12 photos)

Snapping shots through the lens of his camera, Jaime Ibarra is always looking for an artistic angle. He takes photography to another level, accentuating the beauty, movement, and color of his models.

Hi-Def Pics - Awesome Long Exposure Photography (10 photos)

I love how long exposure shots intensify light and movement. When an image is taken including stationary and moving subjects using a slow shutter speed, interesting effects, such as light trails occur.
