well i think you did a great job here despite what you may have first thought about the fav's, and i instaneously knew it was a nature shot. but then youre right about it being on the verge of abstract because i thought it was something completely different but that was when i saw it as a thumbnail. Great work anyways. you used an interesting technique. does it have a name?
You're welcome! I have looked, and stared and stared some more at this......I love the colors, they make me calm and happy. I am a HUGE fan of abstract art and this was right up my alley!
I do have one question for you though....would you be willing to tell me the techniques you used to get this result? It's amazing to know that these are trees, and you were able to maintain the shapes and lines so well.
Thank you I really appreciate your... appreciation
I would love to share the technique I used a slightly slow shutterspeed but too slow (I used 1/60 for this which was slow enough but still fast as to quickly gather pictures before the lighting was thrown off since the day was changing pretty quickly). When I took the picture I jolting the camera upwards and down until the exposure was finished. It took EXTREME patience and attention to detail as well as fine tuning while taking the photo. I had to move the camera angle upwards at the precise angle and back downwards again as to not capture the foliage of the actual tree. As I had to move it upward to parallel the angle the trees were sitting because moving it upwards 90 degrees just made a blurry mess I also slightly adjusted the focus, you can tell because the edges are particularly soft This picture is a composite of two of these pictures, So I could attach some of the limbs (like the one on the center tree) because with just the first image, there was a blue blur that went all the way down and out of the picture.
I was actually inspired to do this photo from Eddie Soloway and these photos, you might enjoy them since you seem to enjoy this so much: [link][link][link] For the gallery of these images visit here: [link] .
I hope that explains the process I am glad you enjoyed it so much. If you try to replicate the technique don't be frustrated if you can't get it on the first try. It took me a long time to succeed with only one or two photos . Thank you, Matt
