Photoblog365 Theme: Year of the Boar 2/5/2019 Motion Blur

A friend sent me an animated e-card, the kind that everything spins, whirls and moves from right to left.

When I saw the theme "Year of the Boar", I couldn't resist trying to capture the card in motion-using a long exposure. In the above photo the flowers are spinning clockwise and the pig medallion is slowly moving counter clockwise.

I thought the effect was interesting.

I decided to place my cursor over the image to see how much I was moving (hand-held) and how much the picture was moving. In the above image it was a bit of both.

It looks like I was a bit more steady in this image.

I never thought to practice long exposure photography using animation on my lap top. It was a fun experiment...

Happy Chinese New Year!

May it be filled with prosperity and joy, kindness and compelling positivity...and may these "rub off on the world around you"!

That's what I LOVE about the photobog365, it makes me look at things in a whole different way and come up with ideas, I wouldn't have thought of otherwise (inspiration in the weirdest of ways).
I love to experiment, so that was fun.
Have fun trying it, I think it's good practice when it's too cold to go outside!
