About the Image(s)

My camera club had Charles Needle speak on Painting Impressionist Photos with Your Camera last Monday night. It was a really great presentation and we received inspiration as well as a good deal of "how to" so I headed out with a friend to create some "impressionist" photos.
How I did it: I used my Sony G Master 70-200 lens with a collar on a tripod to capture this image. I set my camera in Aperture Priority to F16 and loosened the collar a bit so I could rotate the camera while shooting 28 separate images. I brought the 28 images into Photoshop and then combined them all with this result.

Kathy, I admire your dedication to this project, 28 images! You've created a beautiful flower spiral. I wonder if you were to darken the edges if it might make the colors more intense, although that might defeat your goal of impressionism.   Posted: 07/07/2021 20:34:26

Cool technique. How about making the basket the only non-blurry part of the image by cloning it into the image?   Posted: 07/08/2021 13:47:50

Kathy, I really like what you have done here. It is impressionistic, yet imparts some realism of the flower garden. The cropping and the placement of the pot in the upper right work. I do not think of any suggestions to make.   Posted: 07/22/2021 11:12:41
