Live Photo Chicago by Jerry Hug, APSA

May 2020 - Live Photo Chicago

About the Image(s)

Live Photo used in part of the Chicago “L” train in part of the underground rails.

I just kept clicking as the train flew buy. I leaned against a concrete post to avoid the wind from the speeding train. If you have “Live Photo” on your iPhone and not share how to use it. Git the free Apple Support app. It gives simple and clear instructions how to use the Photo/Video for different effects. Here I used the “Long Exposure” effect. Long Exposure is also great for mountain streams and water falls to get the soft milky water look.

Cool image Jerry. The tram goes by so fast it makes the windows disappear. All the long triangles converge to the stopping point on the right side. Cool photo and thanks for explaining the technique.   Posted: 05/06/2020 15:59:31

I like the cell phone reference in the cellphone pic from the woman taking the same shot.She gives us a reference point to how long this train is and the color balance as well. As Dave said, thanks for planning how you did this.   Posted: 05/06/2020 20:25:49

Very creative use of a feature on your phone. I'm not sure my old phone can do this but I need to investigate. You really get the feeling of the train whizzing by at a fast speed.   Posted: 05/07/2020 17:18:30

Wow! Lots of motion. One can almost hear the train whizzing by and feel the wind. I'll have to read up on "Long exposure." Thanks for sharing. Nice image.

Magnificent train blur artfully captured by your phone is perfect backdrop for station scene. Like the blurry figure in red as enhances speed of the train . Well thought out and captured photograph.   Posted: 05/14/2020 09:26:36
