365 Project – 15: Intentional blur (January 15, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/5, Aperture: F8, ISO: 400, +2.3 step

A new technique I learned during my last photography class was how to intentionally create blur or motion by either quickly zooming in and out your zoom lens. With a fixed lens you would use your body to move forward and back, or even jiggle the camera, which is what I did here with my 50mm. It was snowing outside this morning and I decided to try this effect by moving the camera in a circular motion and this is why I got. So, why do you want to intentionally create a blurry photo? I can barely draw a stick figure so with my camera now I can “draw” some abstract art, even straight out of the camera without post-processing. And, just because it looks cool! 🙂
