I so enjoyed playing around with multiple exposures and camera movement the other day that I decided to approach "movement" in a different way. Actually the way that I approached it is the more traditional "slow shutter speed and move the camera" way.
My vision was to go after color. It's July and the gardens are full of various colors. So, I went so far as the pansies that are by our front door. I set the shutter speed as low as possible and also the ISO. And then I tried a couple of shots. One of the nicest ones of the series is a shot that I took early on, when I was still in the experimental phase. It's a slow pan of our planter. What I like about the results is that it's such a nice blend of color. I can imagine the planter with the brown dirt and the three different colors of pansies, but that gets overwhelmed the the wonderful display of vibrant colors.
Later on in this photo shoot, I decided to pan using a sine wave motion and I love the energy that is the final image. A little criss-crossing and a lot of fun is suggested. I imagine that the whole scene is dancing, reveling in the color.
The Flower Box attached to the garage is a different approach. The Pansies are stacked up there and overflow the flower box. I tried a slight sine wave pan and achieved this affect.
And my final photo of the series is the two distinct clusters of color, white and red.
It was a fun and exhilarating series to shoot and process. I am enjoying the abstract results. Love the color. All in my front yard.
