「一秒」有多久?「時間」於我來說只是一個觀念、或只是一個感覺。當你忙碌非常,時間總是極速跑掉,當你沉悶難當時,時間卻就有如停滯了。一般人會覺得「一秒」只是很短的光陰,但於攝影的世界裏,我們甚少會用「一秒」去拍攝,因「一秒」對於相機來說,是太長了。

急速的城市生活令人無法花丁點時間去觀察身邊微細的日常事物,當你認為沒有特別之處時,若可花一秒鐘去看看你的周圍,你將會找到許多意想不到的事物。


How long does one second last? I always think that “Time” is just only a concept or feeling. Sometimes when you are busy, you will feel that time runs very fast and sometimes when you are bored, you will feel that time runs very slow. In common, people will think that “one second” is just only a very short period of time but in photography, we seldom use “one second” to shoot our photo, since it is too long for the camera.

Nowadays, the rhythm of life in most of the cities is too fast and people won’t spend a second to observe some little stuffs in their daily life. There may be nothing special but if you try to use “one second” to look around in your daily life, you will find a lot of things in “one second”!

In this series of photos, I tried to use 1/60 second shutter and shot 60 times in each scene, and merged them with Photoshop. So that every photo is only “one second”!
