November 2011 - Intentional camera movement during the exposure

This is a discussion on November 2011 - Intentional camera movement during the exposure within the Level 2 photography assignments forums, part of the Photo assignments category; Love it Casil. I thought no way I was going to even try a zoom blur but it really works ...

    My mistake has been seeking new landscapes. I should have been seeking new light.

    Sorry to hear about your guitar, but the silver lining is that you ended up with a really nice image - the motion gives the shot impact (no pun intended).

    Thanks for the compliment! I thought the finished product was quite unique and am happy with it.

    Two more shots...
    During this exposure, I tracked the camera along the curving line of the bent-over tree trunk. This resulted in keeping the tree fairly sharp while blurring the background. I rotated the image 90 degrees to give it an even more 'Dreamworld' appearance. Not a great photo but an interesting experiment.

    The colours of this large decaying flower were smeared out with a small horizontal movement. The 'painted' streaks were well separated from the background because the plant was covered with a light frost and it was sunlit - this gave it more luminence. Specular reflections from the frost became sharp white lines and I think, add to the texture of the 'paint'.

    On Wednesday, we had our first big dump of snow. By Thursday it was melting fast, but I was able to get a few images for this photo assignment. The solid overcast sky blends into the trees, giving the impression there is much more snow than there actually was.

    One last image for this assignment - finished the shot just before midnight last night. It is a combination of two main camera movements. The streaks from the seemingly rising stars -Sirius in trees / lower left, constellation Orion, and the Hyades & Pleiades (Seven Sisters) clusters are caused by the stationary camera being mounted on the spinning planet Earth. After a 30 minute exposure, I covered the lens for 5 minutes and then started the motor on my homemade equatorial mount which moves the camera at the same rate as the earth-spin but in the opposite direction. Uncovering the lens, I exposed for another 15 minutes. This produced star dots at the end of their tracks. The three belt stars in Orion are near the celestial equator as viewed from the Earth. Above these, the startrails curve upwards toward the north celestial pole and below, the trails curve downwards toward the southern one.

    Canon XT, Soligor 17mm F3.5 lens (at F8), ISO 100.
