day 157 – zoom blur effect

zoom blur effect

 

this looks like a dust storm or some type of explosion out in a field somewhere.  actually, it’s a center piece arrangement using the technique of zooming the lens while the camera takes the exposure.  often times the center of the photo is more visible and the surrounding image looks like it’s moving away or toward you. i handheld this shot so there’s a lot more blur.

    “this looks like a dust storm or some type of explosion out in a field somewhere.”

    Yes, that’s exactly what it looks like. Also, it looks like something you would see in a movie; representing what was going on in the mind of someone who was DREAMING while they were sleeping.

    LOVE the effect, girl! And thank you so much for explaining HOW you did it. Way cool!

    There is a similar effect you can use on PicMonkey, however the effect is created in post production.

      ron, this is one weird looking photo. it was taken in the living room, but looks like it could have been taken outside. definitely some kind of smoke or dust.

      thanks. i’ve been wanting to do this, but with a tripod, may try again. picmonkey? i’ll have to look that up.

Speak on it!
