During this class I asked students to play with effects, created by moving camera on a long shutter speed.

There is no other meaning of this type of photography, as creating some unpredictable abstract results. There are no rules, just suggestions:

  1. Use shutter speeds longer than 1/30 sec. Try longer ones up to seconds, although you’ll need a darkening filter for your lens to help camera handle the amount of light.
  2. Experiment with different types of movement: vertical, horizontal, circular, wavy, jerky etc.
  3. Try different objects and textures in your frame. Even some generic objects can cause interesting color patterns, being guided by camera movement.

Here are my results from this class.
