It's All A Blur To Me

The other day I was at the refuge. The sky was cloudy. The light was meh! If there was any wildlife activity it was under the cover of the lotuses that blanket the impoundments. Frankly, it would have been a better morning to head to Dunkin Donuts than to try to take photographs.

But I was there. I had my camera, there had to be something to do photographically. I decided to play around with some techniques that I had heard at a recent workshop. Rather than holding your camera still, with fast shutter speeds and wide open apertures to free the action you do the exact opposite. You use long shutter speeds of 1/8 - 1/15 of a second (or longer), narrow apertures, and you purposely move the camera to create artistically blurred images.

Now I've take my share of accidentally blurred and out of focus images, but would you believe it is a lot harder to do it intentionally and end up with a pleasing result.

So here is a different view of the refuge. Hope you enjoy it. If you don't stop back again. I promise to take some "normal" photos of the flora and fauna.

Here are some horizontal panned views of the impoundments.

  1. Making the whole scenario blurred and taking a picture is indeed a art and you are very well aware of this art.Love the way you have blurred things to make it more beautiful,just like the painted one.

  2. If you mean, how can you convert songs bought on itunes to an mp3 player, the answer is: if the songs were bought a while ago, its difficult because they have copyright protections (called DRM or Digital Rights Management) in them that only allow them to be played on ipods.FOr more infor, please visit Mp3 convert

  6. Why should we bother making a super high-quality, expensive album if nobody is going to pay for it anyway and will just download it for free as an MP3
