A Blur of People 8:52

Hello All!  Today I have week 8's photo, called A Blur of People! Now this shot took a hell of a long time, but I love the outcome, I had the idea while I was walking in town and everyone seemed to be running and not paying much attention, and this came to me, so I set up my tripod behind a sign (to try not to hinder anyone) and set the exposure time to something like just over a second's exposure, (but if you want to do this yourself, 1/30 or slower should work!) and set the aperture as high as possible, and the ISO as low as possible, because  for the blurring to be captured, the exposure time had to be fairly long.

I LOVE the outcome, was really pleased that this worked, what do you think?

Blue skies and Construction 7:52

Here's my week 7 photo, entitled "Blue skies and Construction".

If you look through most of my shots recently, you can really see where I am experimenting with empty space, lighting and Positive and Negative space in photos.  Positive space is the part in the photo that contains the focal point, or the subject, which in this case is the crane, and the Negative space is the sky surrounding the crane. Photographers usually leave large amounts of negative space like this when the photo is for a poster, or magazine cover, as the Negative space can easily be filled with text without covering the focal point.

That week wasn't a very productive one, and I didn't get many shots. the ones I DID get, were crap, so here was the best one from that particular week.

Keep Photographing, and feel free to share your photos that include a lot of negative space below!

I'm Back!

I cannot explain how sorry I am for neglecting the blog for so long, but I've been so busy with exams, work and     other miscellaneous problems, I have had little or no time at all to update or check the blog, but guess what? I'm back, and I have several new posts coming, I know it can't make up for what you missed, but I'm back, and I'll be posting regularly again! (If all goes to plan xD)
