Week 16 – #36 Out of Focus

36 Out of Focus-1

Again in the Smoky Mountains, when we went out with Bill Lea, in the rain I might add, he had us experimenting with doing swipes.  The concept is to keep the tree trunks straight and to do this so the leaves merge causing the color shifts.  It is not as easy as it sounds and I have a number of just plain blurred images.  This one, the dark lines are the tree trunks, and you are seeing the different colors that were present – including the blues of peoples’ jackets.

  1. So cool! Did you just move the camera while taking the shot?

    After so many years of holding the camera steady, this is refreshing. The blues really add a special look to this one!

  4. interesting, I would never have figured out what this was. Knowing what it is, it becomes even more interesting and I can imagine it’s difficult to get those lines straight like that.

    AH yes… so much fun. I have a few like that but the colors aren’t nearly as nice. Good job.

    What fun – I like it – something new to try.

  7. Wow! I like it very much. Thank you for the information too. I have tried it and it is difficult to get a good one!
