View Full Version : Some attempts at intentional camera movement

05-04-2013, 12:13 PM
After listening to Marko's podcast on intentional camera movement and attending Eddie Soloway's talk in Boston last month, I decided to give moving the camera around a shot. Definitely not easy to get something that works, but it's a lot of fun to step out of your box!

Here are a few that I did over the last month. Let me know what you think. And please forgive the horrible sensor dust on the second one (guess I haven't shot with f/22 in a while!). [edit--I removed the bulk of the nasty dust spots!]

That first one is a real stunner Jason!!! Wow!

I really like #2. #'s 1 & 4 are really nice, but #3 just doesn't o it for me. Here is a assignment we did a couple years ago with the same thing http://www.photography.ca/Forums/level-2-photography-assignments/16573-november-2011-intentional-camera-movement-during-exposure.html

Thanks Casil!

theantiquetiger, I've been really on the fence about #3--I think this is hard to pull off with people as a subject. I was looking through the November 2011 assignment just before I posted these--there's some great stuff in there!

I'm actually going to be a bit different and say that I like 3 and 4 best. Don't know why but 3 looks good to me.

oh I LOVE #1!!

1 & 4 for me....

Great results Jason.

I really like the first shot and quite like number 3 as well.

Thanks everyone! I went back and removed most of the dust from the first two.
