Orton abstract

Today while I was downloading IOS5 for my iPhone (took forever!), I went out in the yard to practice the Orton “movement technique.” I learned about the technique–carefully and deliberately moving the camera while the shutter is open–after listening to Michael Orton on the current Photography.ca blog podcast. This image of the underside of our rosebushes is a first attempt and was the 14th shot (out of 20) I took during the shoot. It’s definitely tricky to get a good image.

At Sunday night’s gig, except for the stage, the space was very dark. And because I also had to play guitar I didn’t have a lot of time to think about “making a good shot.” I did, however, gather some pixels for abstraction. Here’s a noisy, handheld at a very slow shutter speed shot I made work with post processing.
