Silky Scene - Planting a Seed

Posted by
Jason Kravitz (Brussels, Belgium) on 6 October 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

This is my submission to the Planting Seeds Aminus3 community challenge.

The idea of the theme is to identify a photographic technique that you'd like to improve, and post a photo trying that technique.

Then take the next few weeks to work on that skill and post an updated photo showing how you've improved...

The technique I'd like to explore further is Daytime Long Exposure. I'll be looking at Aminus3 photographer's Ian Bramham, Mike, and John Leech for inspiration on this technique.

These guys work mainly in B&W but I think it can be used with color as well as in this shot. We'll see how my learning goes over the next few weeks.

Stay tuned !

There are still a few days to participate in this theme - I encourage everyone to give it a try as it is a good way to learn a new photography skill this month.

I hadn't understood the theme this way, so I just gave a picture about the theme of the "seed", I don't know if it's ok or if I have to remove it.
Yours has a super soft sky and a very good compo.

@Basile Pesso: thanks Basile - you can still change your photo before then end of the day if you'd like to try something different. Just go to the theme page, click on your "current selection" image and then click "Remove this image from the 'Planting a Seed' theme" then choose a different image.

This is gorgeous! Did you use an ND filter?

@bluechameleon: much appreciated ! I used a Singh-Ray 5 stop ND filter and a polarizer

Nicely titled and captured Jason. I appreciate the theme of planting seeds of challenge or areas of mastering. Gee, my post would be a montage of about 17 areas of "seeds" if you know what I mean. But it will be great fun and educational to watch and learn from the really serious photographic students.

@Joyce: thanks Joyce you just to pick 1 seed to get started :)
