This week, for Exploring With A Camera, the challenge is to blur an image on purpose, using different ways to mess with your subject. I used 3 different methods that made simple images look abstract. (Have to admit that this was fun!)
I held a drinking glass in front of the lens to get this look. The actual subject is a small painting I created a couple years ago.
Then I stood behind a sheer curtain and used the remote for my camera to get this image. The only thing I have done post processing is crop the image and give it the sepia tones.
This little faded flag was literally flapping in the cold winter breeze at the park yesterday. I slowed the shutter down considerably so that it would be blurred.
It’s called Artistic Blur, and Kat Sloma has some fabulous examples of it, as well as a great tutorial with ideas for trying it. Click on the button below to learn more!
