Weekly photo challenge: Zig Zag

A zig zag picture for this week’s photo challenge. Taken in Hunstanston, it was an attempt at some slow exposure photograph. Next time I’ll try with a tripod and a ND filter, which is a better way of getting this pictures right.

    This photo came pout great even if you didnt use a tripod.

      I’m glad you like it! Using tripod for different exposure effects is something I still have to practice. Slow exposures, time lapses… Lots of things to try.

    The current trend to use water ‘washing’ over (whatever) on book covers has led me to wonder how on earth the original photos were taken. And now I know. Researching slow exposure is now on my procrastination list and your great site continues to live up to its name. Thanks!

      Yeah, in some cases it becomes a cliché, but there are some really nice examples around. Not just about water. I find “The city of Shadows” of Alexey Titarenko a really inspiring (and creepy, at the same time) example. This blog post explains more about it: http://beccahigginson.wordpress.com/2012/12/02/camera-techniquesartist-research-alexey-titarenko-slow-shutter-speed/

      Speaking of book covers… Let me know if you are interested in any of my pictures for one… 😉

        I had that in mind already! Quite a way to go before my current work is looking for a cover, but I’ll get back to you about that, for sure. Thanks.

What do you think?
