April 2021 - A different view of Le Tour d'Eiffel

About the Image(s)

Technical: Nikon D300, Nikkor AFS 16-85mm f/3.5~5.6 DX @ 16mm, 1/10s, f/3.5, ISO 1600
Deion: This is another example of 'intentional blur'. I was in Paris (obviously!) and shooting primarily touristy points of interest. From a photo-creative standpoint, quite boring since most of the images can be had on postcards with less effort. It was difficult to find something to point my camera at that would result in a product not usually seen. I think I may have achieved that with this image, but I'll have to let my peers be the arbiters of that.

How did you do did you create the "shakes". And, at what time of night do you take this? It's terrific. I want to learn this!!   Posted: 04/02/2021 07:41:18

Excellent and creative use of a slight zoom with the lens. I am guessing, but was this done hand held?   Posted: 04/11/2021 11:42:25

Hi Michael, very intuitive. That's exactly what I did. I did not have a tripod or other support that evening so after I set my exposure, I put the camera down on the top of a stone wall, raised the lens up with my wallet and gave the lens a small twist while the shutter was open.

I like this a lot. So very different than most intentional camera movement images. And the exposure is, to me, spot on, with the last reddish glow of the evening still visible. And the range of reds and golds works very nicely.

Evokes fond memories, for me.   Posted: 04/11/2021 15:32:55
