Rounding out my trifecta of carnival rides, I present the Spider. An abstract Spider. As with the other two posts, I shot this free-hand, but with a twist. The twist of the zoom lens that is. At a 0.4 second exposure, we get motion blur from the ride, but I also zoomed out simultaneously. In effect, it’s a 3-Dimensional motion blur.
What resulted is this wacky, colorful mess, which I emphasized with post processing. I shot a few more but like this one best for the mix of color patterns. I only hit upon this 3D motion blur idea at the end. Perhaps I’ll play with more of it in the future.
After going to the same events over the years, I’m trying to find different ways to shoot them. I don’t think these are particularly earth shattering and I certainly didn’t invent some new technique. But it’s stuff that I haven’t done before.
