In the post Whoosh I declared that I’d made some plans of what I wanted to take on my visit to Newport. Well another shot I wanted to try and re-create was the impressionistic accident I once captured at Soar-y-Mynydd in mid-Wales, which I called Serendipity, when I stumbled with my finger apparently on the shutter-release. Afterwards I discovered that it was a recognised “technique” – but not the stumble part!
What you need to do is to again use a Neutral Density filter to slow the shutter-speed down a bit and then put the camera on shutter-delay and then swing the camera over the subject. You need to experiment to get the result you think best, but here above and below, are my choices of the best from the experiment.
By the time you get to the last one, the crocus are identifiable, I think. Which one do you like best, or perhaps you don’t like any of them – I can understand that as well!
