I had a lot of fun playing around with the camera today. Whereas I have spent much of the winter working on low light photos by pushing the ISO setting as high as I could and trying to hold the camera as steady as possible, today I went the other way. It’s not the first time I’ve played around in this way , but I set the shutter speed to 1 second and moved the camera around during the exposure – up and down , left and right, zoom in and out, or playful curves – painting with light!
I like some of the images that resulted and plan to make a conscious effort to explore this approach. Here are five photos from this evening (incidentally, a cold one with a temperature with windchill around -30C):
