Even when out walking about taking photos I like to mix things up. I might shoot images that I think have the form to work well as black and white and then I will shift gears, drop my shutter speed way down and generate some camera motion abstracts.
Here are a selection of photos from my recent photoshoot in Calgary, where I abstracted images in the downtown area. There is a suggestion of the hard lines of urban forms but they are softened and there is a sense of familiarity but you can’t quite focus and identify the forms.
Something a little different today. I have continued with my experiment from yesterday – of using a very slow (1 second) shutter speed and “painting” with light.
What I found on my camera tonight were a number of images that I find a little bit disturbing – unsettling is perhaps a better word. Some are colorful, playful and interesting but somehow they seem like something out of a bad dream – Welcome to my nightmare…
How do these images make you feel? What quality (or lack thereof) do you think accounts for the feeling?
