I really enjoy long-exposure photography. Particularly, I’ve really been into Alexey Titarenko‘s work. He does amazing things with his camera. Using a long exposure will keep still objects in sharp focus, which contrasts nicely with moving objects that will appear out of focus. You can get really creative with this type of photography.
A couple weeks ago, me, my wife and our daughter went to Family Movie Night at KU’s Memorial Stadium. It was fun to lay a blanket on the fifty yard line and watch the movie “Minions” on the jumbo screen. They had their bouncy houses for the kids and lots of (over-priced) munchies to snack on during the movie.
I wanted to capture an image that showed a repeating pattern, but not have it be symmetrical. The visitor’s section of seats was perfect. I added an Impressions layer, from Topaz Labs, to give it some texture, as well as a more artsy feel. The Impressions plug-in from Topaz Labs is probably my favorite of all of their plug-ins!
This image was shot using the Sony α6000 mirrorless camera with an adapted Minolta Rokkor 50mm f/1.7 lens.
