The art of Blur


   On a trip to Amsterdam I found myself at the Cobra Museum wanting to take photo’s of this very cool place, but without a tripod. I took several shots by resting the camera ( Canon 50D w/ 17-40 lens) on rails or what ever was handy and found this limiting. After I became bored shooting this way, my granddaughter and I started taking blurred photo’s. The technique is easy, but only a small percentages will turn out. The photograph’s were made by setting the shutter speed at 2-3 seconds and moving the camera during the exposure. We played with focused and unfocused shots and found the one’s that were focused and then blurred by camera movement seem to be the most pleasing.  


Most of my photograph’s are for sale through Art Shows or by visiting Etsy.
