Time and motion study

by Helen Hooker December. 09, 2016 1147 views

I had a cunning plan for this week's theme which I intended to implement during my commute to Sussex today.  Knowing my task was to shoot from a high perspective, the balcony at Waterloo Station seemed like a good vantage point.  Sadly I only had a few minutes before my train was due to leave so I had a very speedy go at capturing some motion among the travellers below me.  I was pushing the boundaries a little, shooting at a tenth of a second, but I rather like the sense of movement in the resulting images.

I love these! I've always enjoyed time lapse / long exposure photography. These are so much fun - make the imagination run!! =)

Thank you Elaine - it was a fun way to kill some time before I caught my train!

Tenth of second handheld can yield some really cool shots. Image stabilisation
and a steady hand helps. Well done, Helen, an inventive take on this week's
theme! Waterloo is the station I use in London to get back to Salisbury, so I
can imagine the sounds and picture where you're standing to take these.

Thanks Ben. I had fun trying this, even if the results weren't quite a sharp as I'd ideally like. I know Waterloo very well as I used to travel from there to Petersfield to teach every week. On this occasion I was travelling from there to avoid using the dreadful Southern Trains to get to Chichester!

I have to try to do this kind of photography one of these days.

It's fun, but don't expect a big hit rate if you're shooting hand held! :-)
