[THEME] show motion
« on: February 02, 2017, 12:58:49 »
These first examples might not be super creative, but they are painterly and colorful and

YOU CAN DO BETTER!!!!

So: do not hold you camera still and/or do not shoot resting objects, move your camera, move your body, shoot moving subjects, use longer exposures

PAINT WITH YOU BLUR GUN!!!
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Frank, given that you are a professional photographer, I am surprised to see dust spots on your images.
Further, your images are not that bad at all, I like them blurry.

Dust bunnies? Reallly. Did I miss one? You honor me by watching my pics more closeley than I do.

;-)

I am currently sarching for a picture expressing "way" as an abstract.

In German "Weg" is contained in "unterwegs" and "bewegt" and I try to play with motion...

Very nice series Frank! - I especially like #6 (schnell fortbewegen). You should definitely dust off your gear  ;)

Frank, you started yet another interesting thread, and that at such a high level!  Worth challenging!

For this kind of motion blur shot in a daytime, one has to stop down the lenses quite a bit.  That's why the dust bunnies are prone to be revealed well...  Not as much as the pinhole, though.  :D

I have many pictures of "movement" but this one is special.

So you do remember it! I´m sure I posted it shortly after taken it.

   Thanks Akira!


   This one is from the last weekend. Panning is a hard thing to do. For this one I tried some extra slow speed. Under the bridge. Guadalquivir river, Sevilla

OK, I'm confused. Frank do you actually want blur by moving the camera?  I have tons of object blur from shooting at too slow speed
1/100


and I practice panning almost every time I am waiting on my wife or son  (bored) .
Paco, I find panning bicycles much harder than faster objects, I like that one.   I find people walking the hardest to time.  I have started experimenting with reverse panning which might meet Frank's criteria ;)  Fun abstracts but often hard to identify what I was shooting... lol

Thanks Tom,
 

  I fully agree about the panning of slower subjects. That same day I tried with walking and running people, electric personal devices and what not with various degrees of success.
  I also think Frank has keep the theme and what he wants open to interpretation on purpose but he can confirm better himself, Frank?

   Reverse panning is a interesting concept... :)

"Sweep panorama" using a super-wideangle pinhole on D750.  The "compressed" horizontal AOV is roughly 120 degree.  No stitching, of course!

Paco, so far working with the Nikons and MF lenses with zone focus.  AF doesn't work well for reverse panning and have always found panning with mirrorless harder(EVF).  Some good, but not great, results with EM1.   Panning fast Soccer players with AF can work but , again, mixed bag when trying to catch them at closer ranges with the D3S, 70-200 2.8.   I cannot even imagine the cost of playing around this way with film  :(
Akira, like finding shapes in clouds  ;)

Yes. OPEN is the word. All excellent examples. Paco. I remember the shot. Loved it from the first time I saw it. Superb. All others: comments later. Daughter calling!
