Light, Shape, Colour and Movement
21 Nov 2010
I love photography, it is my passion and I can be found in most spare moments with my camera in hand looking for something to point my lens at. However, although I like to document through the lens what I see before me, sometimes I feel that I want to present it in a more abstract way.
Making use of the available light and colour I will sometimes use the shape of the object to dictate the way in which I decide to capture the subject. Sometimes I will just move the camera whilst pressing the shutter to see what effect I can create. I can not give a definitive description of how to capture such images as it all depends on the subject and the available light, however, if you have a DSLR then I use it on shutter priority and change the time accordingly.
I find that moving the camera whilst shooting enhances the colours of the subject which you are trying to capture. Seascapes and trees are the best subjects that I have found to date, however, if the mood takes me I will try it out on different things just to see what effect I can make.
I have included some of my most recent photos that I have taken using this technique.
