Does Google Photos allow users to search by meta data?

For example, I'm looking to browse photos with an exposure time of at least 4 seconds.

I've tried searching for 'long exposures' in the search bar hoping that such photos would be tagged by the image recognition software that recognizes subjects in the pictures. Unfortunately, it gave a general 'no results' error message.

The meta data in my photos also records shutter speed, which can be retrieved on the information tab of individual pictures on Google Photos. I'm wondering if there's a way to search that meta data for all of my photos on the web app.
