Picture of the week - Times Square (weeee!)

No comments

The motion blur effect was added later with gimp using this tutorial. I used a horizontal motion blur instead of a zoom blur and reversed the layer order, with unblurred on top, set the mode to "overlay" and then applied the mask and gradient to it. This is why I appear a bit shimmery, "overlay" basically brightens the bright and darkens the dark colours.
It might have been possible to get a similar effect using slow sync flash and slightly moving the camera from left to right when taking the picture, but I was being the model so I could not test this theory.

I did make a motion blur picture using shutter speed of 1/4 sec, aperture of 1/125 and iso 200, moving the camera slowly from left to right:


And a zoom blur (zooming out) at the same setting:


My dream now is to go back to Times Square with a willing model and a tripod...

Washington and New York were great, but I'm too jet lagged to write much today so instead here is a gallery of black and white pictures of Washington. Use tab to browse through the slide show.

Picture of the week - Kría

No comments


The Kría (Arctic Tern / Sterna paradisaea) is my favourite bird, despite the fact that it is super scary as it is aggressively protective when nesting. They nest in the arctic and spent the winter in the antarctic and are the stunt pilots of the birdlife.

Hólavallagarður is a cemetery in central Reykjavík. It is like a fairytale forest and in summer full of flowers.

Surprise! It is a gallery! Use the "tab" key to browse through the pictures.

Ducks relaxing with their ducklings at the water edge at the lake Tjörnin (literally "the pond") in central Reykjavík.
