Forget Photoshop! Today I used a fun technique originally learned shooting slide film – This was a long time ago so don’t ask my age! The technique is rather simple and can yield some fun and creative results. The basic process involves setting your camera to a slow shutter speed while panning up or down to create a blurred effect. Let’s take a look at a couple images. In both cases my shutter was in the 1 second range allowing ample time for camera movement to create the blurred effect. Feel free to contact me with questions and thanks again for all your support!
