Intentional Camera Movement

Well, as you can imagine, I'm a little preoccupied with preparing for a hurricane that is supposed to find me in about 5 hours. I have not had time to do a legitimate intentional movement picture, but I did do one where I cheated, kind of, but it is something I have been intending to try for a while.

I pulled up one of my photos from last winter, high resolution on my biggest and best screen, a photo that had light beams and cloud formations that were sort of beam-like. I took a picture of the screen with a 13 second hand held exposure while zooming 12 to 40. It kinda turned out like I wanted it to.

Since intentional movement is something I like, I may try another once I get past the basic survival project for the next day or two - or more, depending on what happens. After Katrina I spent my days standing in lines to get ice and water and gas and other stuff, before eventually fleeing to Ohio once the airport got reopened. So I don't know what tomorrow will bring.
those are lovely colors!!!
Thanks!

Assignment - Combine two of your favorite images.

When I thought about my favorite images, the one I shot on Monhegan almost 8 years ago of the young fisherman rowing out to his lobster boat came to mind. I loved that image, and it played a role pushing me to learn more about editing, about using textures and shaping light to help tell a story. Most folks here have seen this image multiple times - when I first took it, when I did new edits of it as I learned new things, and finally when I had it printed on canvas as a gift to his parents after his death.

So I had to consider what might I add to it that didn't reduce it in some way? I decided to add a photo I took on my last Monhegan trip of his daughter, then 10 , as her grandfather taught her to row a dory to and from their lobster boat in the harbor. I tried to match things up as best I could (entirely different light and color and atmospherics, different camera and lens) and position them to suggest the daughter and grandfather were closer to the foreground but that their paths would cross before they reached shore.

nice composite - If you didn't explain I never would have known you did a composite. Looks really good.

I've got behind due to family emergency. Husband had surgery, requiring full time nurse, cook, housekeeper, and chauffeur.

Last week's theme was bark, and I had taken this picture in the swamp of one of the bald cypress that survived the mayhem down there. It's the only cypress I can get to without hip boots and close up conversations with alligators.
