Entries in motion blur (2)



I enjoy experimenting when shooting.  Often times, you get awful, unusable results, but it's very satisfying when your experiments yield something that makes the mind wonder and brings a smile to your face.  (Click the picture to view it larger.)

What you see here is an image of my daughter from our recent photo session.  You can see the first image here.  We took a different approach in shooting this one.  Instead of having her progress directly from right to left ending with a rear curtain sync flash pop, we had her twirl around and I manually popped the flash at a moment of my choosing.  I then let the exposure continue a bit to fill in the frame some more.  

What are your thoughts?  Is this kind of photography too "out there" for your tastes?  Which image do you prefer?  Why?


Study in Motion

Studio shot of my daughter moving across the frame.  I had a lot of fun collaborating with her on this shot.  Click on the image for a larger version.  

Setup info: 4’ softbox with grid (to control the spread of the light) to the left of the model.  Hot light about 20’ to the right of the frame.
