Learning New Techniques...

Only a quick post to get the images up, and I will update it later on. Trying to catch movement of the full body is far trickier than I thought, especially when you have an idea in mind but you are hampered by the resources that you have.

Anyway, after a bit of editing, I am quite pleased with the outcome, I can see where I think the project is going in terms of final pieces.

Off to walk the dogs...

Update, it is a little rainy outside.

Anyway, these images took a long time to work out  in terms of the best shutter speed, light sources, timing, focus and movements. It took far more time than I thought it would in terms of being able to capture a photo that I was initially pleased with, without any editing. The boys did well as the subjects in the photos and their movements worked well in the end. 

When editing the images I have manipulated the brightness and contrast to get the best distinction between the colours and the actions. It also had the added benefit of making the background much darker and therefore making the main focus stand out. Some of the images have had the fresco effect applied to them as it gave the photos a painting quality and made the subject more of a stream of coloured movement.


  1. I love the motion that you have captured in these images. I went and had a look at Cafini, the images are amazing!

    I like the fluid movements that have been enhanced in the editing, especially the top images that has a paint-like quality to it.

  2. I like the way you can see the direction of the movement through the colour, without the clear picture of what the boys were doing. The paint effect is good I don't think it would have been as effective without it.
