PROJECT 52-2-35 Shutter: Slow
Posted By: mithrandir, 03-04-2010, 08:03 PM

Last week we started a new major topic: Shutter. Last week we explored the use of high shutter speeds to capture our project photograph. This week we shift gears and go with S-L-O-W shutter speeds.

Some hints at what we are looking for this week:

45 Breathtaking Examples of Slow Shutter Speed Photography @ SmashingApps

When to use slow shutter speeds

74 Mesmerizing Slow Shutter Shots - Slow shutter photography - Gizmodo

Let's see what we can come up with for this week's project.


(Pictures for the week 35 competition are to be taken and posted between 20100307 and 20100314).

NOTE: We have two Seasonal competitions planned for the last two weeks of year two. You may take pictures for these anytime between 20090705 and the posting dates of 20100704 or 20100711. This way you can include your favorite holiday or season whenever it occurs during the year.

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 52-2 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 nonPentax cameras are allowed. Cameras can be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot and Medium Format.
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 20090705 to listed closing date is acceptable for the
two “Seasonal” competitions – Projects 52-2-51 & 52.

OK, I'll kick off with a recent capture of a fine part of the eastern NSW coast:

I've always believed that P52 is about making us think creatively and getting us to try something different.
I totally agree with what Ken wrote last week. The picture I took for this week is definitely something I have never done before!

Shot at home with the smc M 50mm, 10 sec.

Well, not half as naughty as Iris' shot , but I managed to make one.....
With two ND filters, ND8 and ND4. It was a grey and dull day, but tomorrow will be even worse, not to speak of Sunday. So it had to be.

Some great entries so far, everyone. Let's have some more entries! There's still time.

I'm judging this one, so my picture doesn't count, but I'll include because I shot it for this P52 before I knew my fate this week

Tamia, I hope you don't mind I change my contribution. I am not very happy with the earlier one, so this is my new one .
It's a 2 secs exposure of an artificial waterfall.....

Deluge Ripples

I decided to try to capture the ripples in a puddle in my backyard. I figured a slow shutter speed would capture the interference patterns best.

Had a lot of storms and fast moving clouds here the past few days

Decided to try for a silky effect on the clouds with a long exposure shot this morning at dawn.
