I woke up inspired today, feeling good and thinking about photography …

Moving shapes 6

I was talking to myself: “What if I do this, match it with that one, apply whatever and at the end add some contrast?” 🙂 And that’s what I did. Camera in hands, 400mm lens, no filters, about 2pm. With the camera programmed to different speeds between 1/10 and 1/30, I´ve done some tests with different hand movements (circular, semi-circular, vertical, horizontal, etc.) in order to capture different elements in a garden. At the end and in accordance with the best “drawings” achieved with color and light tracks, I decided to select four photos for experimental composition. Adding layer masks in Photoshop and playing with the hide/reveal brush, I decided the most interesting movements of each image to be part of the final image. At the end … I added some contrast. 🙂

Simple task but very fun and exciting just because of involving Photography, Movement and Art.
