A study on speed

Hey there,

recently while is was riding the train (I did that a lot over the past month) I experimented with long exposure times.

All photographs have been exposed at least 30 seconds, some up to 283 seconds.

Furthermore I set the aperture to the smallest possible stop, f16 at the zuiko lens and f22 at the nikkor and sometimes rotated the camera at some 45° once, or twice.

In my opinion the results are quite interesting, just tell me your position on the shots.

I’d be glad if you give me some feedback on this.

Enjoy & take care

Jimi

  1. I like picture 1 and 3, because they are colourful and have a train ride feel. 4 and 5 are pretty patterns, but they don’t reveal context, unless you look very closely at picture 4 and discover the wagon.

    I don’t like the very dark, very abstract photos too much. I bet it was fun taking them though.

    • Thank you for your hones opinion. It was lots of fun taking these shots. Considering the dark ones, it was a pitch black outside, so there were only very few lights. 😉

  2. Great experiment! I particalarly do like the abstract shots; for me the first the 1st, 3d and 7th stand out! Would make great album covers for some minimal techno or ambient artists 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you. Do you know any minimal-djs? 😉 I didn’t think about these as album covers yet, but it’s a great idea.

  3. Practising to use the camera as a tool without to much focus on the technical aspects can produce some exciting results. Keep exploring it further and try using the new ways you havent tried as yet to capture the play of light ,color and movement …

  4. WOW! Those are awesome! What a great idea! I think I like #9 the most for that one wiggly line with all the other gently waving to straight lines. I like #5 for the colors. Again, great idea for some really good abstract photos!

    • Well if you want to write an post about this you can use these images, as long as you link them to my blog & mention me as the photographer. 😉 If you want I can send you an email with the pictures. Thank you a lot.
