You know that I experiment a lot. I change exposures. I slow down shutter speeds. I pan the camera. That’s just when I’m making the picture. There is the stuff I do in post production. Sometimes I do it. Sometimes I don’t. I try very hard to let the picture teach me what I should do. that takes time. Or not. When you are in the groove it just happens. When you are struggling it doesn’t. Yesterday, I showed you a very sharp picture. Today, the picture is wind-blown and filled with motion.
One important thing to note.
It is the same tree.
I suppose I could just do a study of that tree. I could walk out into the yard and photograph it about a million times. You’d get bored. So would I. I’ll move on today and look for something else. I’d say better. But, really the word is different. As they say, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
The picture. Not much work. Most of the work was done in the field. Or yard. Slow the shutter speed down and make the aperture smaller. Let nature’s motion take over. Much better that way.
