Long exposure shots can light up the night, track motion with trails and reveal all that happens in front of the lens while it's left wide open, creating a single frame record of time passed.
But what happens when you create a long exposure shot of an entire movie?
You get a ghostly image representing how long the actors and the sets appeared in the film, as well as an overall feel for the color palette used in the film.
The image directly above is Alfred Hitchcock's classic Rear Window, and as you can see Jimmy Stewart spent so much time on-screen in the film you can actually make him out in a long exposure shot.
On the other hand, the image at the top of the post is from 2001: A Space Odyssey, and while you can make out parts of the set and a few ghostly silhouettes the shot doesn't say much about the cast.
Photographer Jason Shulman captures the feel of his favorite flicks with these ethereal long exposure shots, and once you start staring at them it's hard to look away!
