AOP part 7: Movement
Now, remember I said this was all natural light? Well the previous images were shot at ISO 1250 at f4. I was getting shutter speeds anywhere from 1/25 to 1/100 depending quite which part of the room was in use and proximity to the window.
Well this set me thinking about doing some very deliberate slow shutter speed work. Now there really isn't anyway to cheat this in Photoshop. You have to do it for real and accept whatever comes out. I like that, but it does make the process hit and miss.
This image is at ISO 200, f11 and 1 second shutter speed. I asked Maja to turn very slowly - a second can seem like an eternity - with pauses start and finish.
We also tried some longer shots, but with small head movements and body movements, but they didn't achieve enough effect to look anything than just a bit blurred.
This is an excerpt from "Anatomy of a Photoshoot" which gives a complete breakdown of two days shooting with a full in-depth step by step review of everything that I do.
