Abstract Photography – the Bamboo

You can use your camera to create abstract photography images by moving the camera during the exposure time. I shot the above image by moving the camera vertically down. To be able to do this, you need to use a very slow shutter speed. The lighting was bright enough this morning, hence I had to lower down the ISO to 50 and to set the aperture to f/16 so I could get a shutter speed of 1 sec. I rested the camera on a dustbin to avoid unwanted hands movement.

The result is a “moving” bamboo image. Try this the next time you are out shooting trees.
