Swoopy 2010

My neighbour across the road has had lights on his house for Christmas and I finally got to do some swoopy photos last night.
I love the first one and if you click on it and enlarge it you will get a better view of the movement.
I went up and down with the camera and then from side to side.




This one was around and around in circles.




And this one was all over the place which has given an interesting effect.




I can't look at coloured lights anymore and not think of swoopy photos.
You have created a monster Maggie.

Great swoopies Doreen. Maggie has a lot to answer for but what would we do without her.

Oooh...these are gorgeous! I can see them being the inspiration for some fabric pieces. Wonderful!

Great swoopies, Doreen. I keep meaning to try it but haven't got around to it yet.

You are taking swooping to a new level Doreen!
Love that first one especially.

Val said...

Just amazing Doreen - do you have a delayed button or do you just move your camera very smartish?!!

What a fun thing to do! I want to have a go! Do you do it on a slow shutter speed to get that effect Doreen?

With you in mind, Doreen, I did another blog today about the Erosion Bundle Project. I show pictures of my bundles placed in nature and added the link to the project. Anyone can join in, the sooner the better

Have fun!

Love

Hi Doreen, I think it would be really interesting if you put your bundle out during your summertime. It would be very interesting to compare results, but a rain dance or two might just ensure some results. Hope you join in, it's only a bit of fun and interesting to discover what happens ...

ps. tell me about your amazing light movement photographs!
