November 11, 2013 -- This was an experiment that turned out better than I expected.
I wanted to see if I could create something abstract and painting like with just the camera. This was a one-second exposure at f/4.5 with just a slight intentional movement up and down. It took a bit of trial and error to get the right amount of moment and exposure.
Camera stuff: Canon 5D Mk II and 50mm f/1.4 USM lens. Aperture 3.
