Lesson # dj-3: "Wind vs Shutter Speed = Abstract"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 10 April 2012 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

if I ever were to become a photography instructor, this would be part of my lesson plan for demonstrating what happens when we try to shoot a flowering bush on an evening with 30-40 MPH wind Gusts while usiing a shutter speed of 1-3/10 of a second with an f22 aperture setting.
I knew, in advance, that the results would be like this. I set the camera intentionally to these values for the purposes of this little demonstration.

I have often heard that my verbal and written communication skills are quite a bit stronger than my photographic skills. Well, I am neither offended nor discouraged by this observation...In fact, I quite agree with the point.

So, for Silly Tuesday, here is my obvious post showing obvious results to all of you, who will obviously respond with: "Well, Yahhh!" :-)

OLYMPUS E-510 13/10 second F/22.0 ISO 100 60 mm

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
