MRT Motion Blur #2 – Singapore

For my second of three motion blur studies in Singapore, we move to the MRT platform. Unlike the old-fashioned trains, the train system there has a fully enclosed platform where the doors only open when the train has arrived. I’ve seen these in airports but never on a large scale in a major city.

When I create motion blurs, I make sure a majority of the frame is tack-sharp. Ensuring only the things truly in motion get the blurring effect. If not, the entire picture becomes a blurry mess, which might work as an abstract, but not much else.

The Canon G7X Mark II compact has decent in-body image stabilization. Perhaps not as good as Olympus, but its more than enough to create these hand-held photographs. Good thing. I would hate to use a tripod in a place like this. And, I’m sure the transit authorities won’t be pleased with it impeding the busy traffic.
