Lightpainting Exhibit

For most photographers, camera motion is something to be avoided. But what if you deliberately move your camera to create a motion blur? The effect can be like painting with light instead of with a brush. Through trial and error, startling images can be created: Abstract, impressionistic, evocative.

When we look at nature and landscape photographs, we generally see the beauty in particular things we can name. By blurring the particular details of a scene, more abstract qualities - pattern, texture, colour, play of light - may be appreciated. Moving the camera provides an opportunity to see beyond the identifiable objects; to contemplate the shapes and colours in themselves. Images are often surprises, almost serendipity, because you never know quite what to expect.
