Hey everyone! This week I came across a new challenge: freeze and blur photography. To be honest, I’ve always wanted to learn how to do light painting or photos with the shutter open for a long time but I had never tried it. Fortunately, I knew the basics of each concept so it didn’t take me too long to get the right settings for each picture.
If you’ve been following my posts, you already know that I’m into music. A lot! For this picture, I asked my friend to jump with his guitar as if he’s at a concert living the dream. Unfortunately, he forgot to mention he had a sprain in his ankle so I was only able to take a couple of shots of his jump. Luckily enough I took some photos before the jump so I can test out the light.
This semester I’ve been trying new things and one of those is Jiu-Jitsu. My roommate encourages me to go with him and I’m amazed at what other people in the class can do. I took these pictures by the end of the class. I asked two guys to show off their skills so I can capture it.
This is probably one of my favorite photos of all time. Even though I can get a nicer picture than this one, I’m satisfied with the results of my first time trying to get this photo. If I were to take it one more time, I’d go to a much more transit street. I took this photo on a Saturday night in Rexburg, Idaho and there were not many cars around the area.
For this photo, I wanted to try some light painting. After seeing some really cool photos and watching some videos I decided to try my luck. As soon as I took this photo, some other ideas came to my mind. I’m planning to keep playing with light painting over the weekend and try to capture these new ideas.
