P52-9-27 Technique - Slow Shutter
Posted By: Tsukiouji, 09-20-2020, 02:34 PM

Pretty self-explanatory theme.

from Wikipedia:
Slower shutter speeds are often selected to suggest the movement of an object in a still photograph. Combined with panning the camera it can achieve a motion blur for moving objects.
When slower shutter-speeds, in excess of about half a second, are used on running water, the water in the photo will have a ghostly white appearance reminiscent of fog. This effect can be used in landscape photography.

Photos for the Week #27 competition are to be taken between Sep 21, 2020 and Sep 27, 2020.

Rules:
1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-9 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed.
Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot, Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones, please.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

Hi Tsukiouji,

Thank you for posting this beautiful article, it is one of the many techniques that enhance creativity not only in photography but in all Arts,
that's why never stop but always experiment.

Ciao Mario

Timely theme for me, I was trying to photograph tall grass in the wind with a 16X ND filter, but the wind seemed to let up a bit whenever I pressed the shutter. I'll have to try again with a new subject and maybe add on a polarizer or a graduated ND, or do it during twilight. Most of the things I want to try seem weather dependent.

This is a macro photo of a flower in a little breeze it is only .3 seconds, it is actually a man made breeze, it happened accidentally with just enough movement to look like camera shake, so I gave it a little help and the result was OK. Not really what I was after, but if my other plans don't work out...

I'm posting it hoping to replace it in the next day or two, but if I don't get something I like better, here it is.

Here is one that is a little more of what I wanted. This is Shunkawauken Falls, near Columbus,North Carolina, it was hard to find, because I lost cell phone connectivity in the mountains; and the carís GPS couldnít find it. Up a mountain road with lots of tight switchbacks, but lots of houses up there, the road was well paved, but a couple of places were one lane, part of the outside lanes was washed away, maybe in the heavy rains they had a week ago. Anyway the road was so tight we drove by the falls on the way up., gave up and turned around, then spotted it on the way down. There was a pullover spot about 50 yards down from the falls. It is right by the road, in fact, it goes under the road and continues below. This picture is only of the part above the road, literally the tripod was leaning on the guardrail. It wasnít as dangerous as it sounds because nobody is traveling that road much over 25 mph. I could not see the top of the falls, we were actually in clouds, that and the mist held the visibility down.

This is shot with the KP and 20-40 with a Haida Nanopro ND 1.2 16x filter. This is a SOOC jpg, I was shooting Raw+ today. Weíre in a hotel tonight and just didnít feel like using mobile Lightroom tonight, sometime that SOOC is just as good anyway. Shot at 1.3 second, F9, ISO 100. I expected to use a slower shutter speed, but you get a lot of diffused light in a cloud, just like fog. I went to a couple other waterfalls today, this was the first. I wanted to use this since you have both the moving water and moving mist to affect with the slow shutter speed. I would have liked to get a faster speed too, but really didnít want to mess with the filter and get drops on the front element, thinking I could miss them, but Iím not sure there may be some on here.

Sometimes good intentions just don't work out. I don't have ND filters, so I am restricted to twilight for taking photos of about half of a second in duration. No problem, when the weather is nice, people like to go walking along the river on the weekend and there are viewpoints where I could capture cars driving by pedestrians. Then the weather turned cold and damp. Then I got inspiration from a post in another thread, to use interval shooting. I set up my camera on a tripod, set the camera to take a photo every 3 seconds and I used a leaf blower to create movement in the thousands of leaves laying on my front yard. This is the scene, pre-leaf blower.



I soon realized that I needed to do something to get the leaves to rise more than a few inches. So I heaped the leaves into a pile.



Still, after 103 photos, this is the "best" I could come up with.

Nice abstract Tom but I like the waterfall scene more. Probably because I like waterfalls.


Good effort RG. You did get some leaves moving in the end. You can get long exposures in a dark room with a flashlight light painting your subject also.


Tom wins this technique challenge and get to pick the next winner.
