Sunrise Special Effects
Yesterday I had a couple of photos from the sunrise on Tuesday. Well, yesterday I took some sunrise special effects shots. The idea all started with this weeks photo challenge. We are to take one shot, like it’s the last frame in a roll of film. I was having a hard time coming up with a technical photo that would fit this idea. Then I thought about a motion blur shot of the sunrise and all the lights in the valley below. I’ll have to show you my One Shot next week on Artsy Fartsy Tuesday.
After I had my single shot, I started playing around with shutter speed, and camera movement even more.
This is what it actually looked like with a normal shutter speed, and of course no movement.
I used a shutter speed of 1 second. I know that sounds pretty fast, but when you consider that normally the shutter operates in the 100ths of a second range, it’s pretty slow.
I pushed the shutter at the bottom of the sky, then moved upward with the camera.
Then I tried a couple with movement, and upward motion.
These are the kind of shots I never get to shoot, and it was a lot of fun to do something different.
After the sun rose a bit more, I took these shots to the east with the sun glow on everything.
Wish us luck for the weekend show, send good vibes and all that stuff.
