Slow Shutter

Circular motion, handheld.

 

There are so many ways to use a slow shutter speed for creative effects. Today  I set up a white piece of foamcore behind some flowers held by a plamp.

Then I moved the camera handheld up, down, around… all different motions.

You get all different effects. Since I enjoy creating greeting cards, I did some where I had plenty of white space too.

I also put the camera on a tripod and moved the flower with my hand in some of the images.¬† Generally I’m shooting at 100 ISO with 1/3 second and f/8. My lighting was from an overhead tungsten bulb and two softboxes’ modeling lights… no flash.
