Tennessee Swipes Photo Play
I enjoy impressionism and abstraction...and what a better way to see a subject...when it lends itself to the technique of moving the camera while the shutter is open. I have found a small aperture works best and at least a one second exposure. These are all images I made while in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I loved the spring colors of bright green, yellow and pink and blue...
This image was made from the back seat of an SR5 traveling about 40 mph, using my 70-200 zoom, pointed at the close mountain hillside as we drove through some narrow roads, the diagonal stripes of color occurred as I turned my camera as we went by the hillside covered with spring plants. ; - )
