Motion and Freeze

For my first project on this journey, I took shots focusing on time. For the first two, I went to a street nearby and started experimenting with blurring backgrounds of moving cars. I dropped my shutter speed to 1/30 for maximum blur and followed the cars’ movements with my camera. I got a couple pictures out of that experiment that I liked. I edited some of the colors and general appearance in Lightroom then finished editing in Photoshop with some extra blurring for style.

I liked how these turned out, so I turned to freezing motion with a faster shutter speed. I set my shutter speed to 1/1000 and stoked my roommate’s inner hair-model self. She enjoyed flipping her hair for my many takes. I later took them into Lightroom for some minor edits like straightening the brick background and adding contrast and exposure.
