Photo of the Week - Week 27 - Long Exposure+Zoom

July 28, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I am continuing to catch up on my blog posts, as well as work through my mountain of images I made during vacation.

One thing that I have done before, but tried again with a new twist, is to make an image with a longer exposure while zooming with a telephoto zoom lens. Here's an image I made of a flower, using this technique.

05JUL2013 Skyline drive zoom-1 I made the above image while I was making some images of the setting sun and some landscapes and the thought occurred to me, "What about doing the same thing but looking at the sunset?" That's when I came up with the following images:

05JUL2013 Skyline drive zoom-2 The very first image (of the flowers) had nothing done in post-processing - the image is as it came out of the camera. The bottom two have had a bit (increase contrast and saturation, as well as cropping for the first one), but nothing beyond that, really.
