Photography technical challenge: motion blur

by Beth March. 30, 2012 2018 views

ok so I am just coming back from a week in the sun (much needed after a very, record achieving wet March in Oregon). I am posting two shots to show results of motion blur. The first shot is using a slower shutter speed to blur the flow of the water (called dreamy by some) and the second I took the shot and zoomed out to get a sense of movement. I thought Mark would have a “cow” with me taking pictures in the airport but he survived :) We are now home…. welcomed by the the everlasting rain.

Nice ones sweetie. The second IS really cool...I know that I want to try the same technique...just not in such a public place!! (I did calm down toward the end!!)

I though about the zooming technique but never tried it, It turned out rather cool. I have been caught by security in both an irport and a shopping mall. He has reason to be concerned.
