Idea: Shoot a Long Exposure Photo of a Backlit Keyboard


Here’s an interesting effect you can create entirely in-camera: photograph a backlit keyboard in the dark using a long exposure while moving your camera around.

A Corsair Vengeance K95 keyboard, which has backlit keys.

Reddit user Odinti tried this out with a Corsair Vengeance K95 keyboard and was able to get some interesting results.

In addition to moving your camera around, you can also try refocusing or zooming in and out during the long exposure, two techniques people also use when shooting creative photos of fireworks.
