Photo Task #2 Pt 2

1 Comment

For the second part of task 2, I have been asked to create photos that exploit long and short exposure.

Long Exposure
For my long exposure photos I will use a slit scan app. I will be looking at a slow shutter speed to create motion-blur.

Short Exposure
In these photos I will look at fast shutter speed and frozen motion.

For the slow shutter speed images, I used water to keep within the theme of ‘CYCLE’ as water is recyclable and can be cycled into many things. I started off with a filled up glass of water, dropping half a lime in it. I soon realised that this would technique would best suit a fast shutter speed as I didn’t get a good image. I used frozen motion on it at 40%. This is what the outcome was:

I then tried it with a fast shutter speed and got this outcome:

As you can see, the fast shutter looks much better as you can see the water bounce and swish around when the lime hits the water. For these three pictures, I used an 800 millisecond time gap between each photo. I used a slow shutter speed again but on water pouring out of a tap. I didn’t like the outcome of this as you couldn’t see when the water came out.

After not liking any of my attempts working on the slow shutter speed, I decided to use it on a moving car in the dark. I hoped this captured the lights and all of the reflections. I was really happy with this image because it came out just as I hoped.

I then started playing around with slit-scan. Before this, I was researching what I could try this teqnichue on when I came across this picture:

I immediately wanted to try and copy this image because I loved how different it looked, especially with the fingers looking abnormally long and wiggly. This is what I created using one hand:
