Yes, here I am again, for those who haven’t convinced themselves that blur can be beautiful. But I am Glad that Carl of ‘Old fellow goes running’, agreed not to deleted blurry pictures without a second thought 😀
Today I am hoping to make some more people to join me in my ‘Blur is beautiful’ Campaign 😉
Like other pictures, this one is also not an edited one.
This technique is known as Zoom blur. To execute this technique effectively you need a tripod, a zoom lens, and of course a camera 😉
Again we are going for a slower shutter speed.
Lets learn zoom blur in some simple steps.
- Camera is mounted on the tripod with a slower shutter speed like 1/10, 1/4 or anything; choice is yours.
- Focus on an object, and then put it in manual focus, so that I won’t adjust itself while clicking the photo
- When you click, the shutter get opened, at that time zoom in or zoom out your lens, preferably without any shake to the camera.
- As the shutter closes, check the result.
- Now you have a zoom blur.
If you don’t have a tripod, don’t worry. Any hard surface can act as a tripod, effectiveness may vary though.
if you don’t have a tripod and zoom lens, don’t worry; you can still try zoom blur. Just move the whole camera towards or away from the object, trying to minimize the camera shake as much as possible. It won’t be a perfect picture as per conventional norms. But remember, blur is beautiful 😀
