I finally made a little time to go outside yesterday to take some photos; with our recent rain it wasn’t a good idea to get my gear wet, even though both of my cameras are somewhat weatherproof, my vintage lenses are not.

I also had only gone outside to throw something in the trash can, but then I looked up at the sky…oooohhh, pretty clouds. I grabbed my phone from my back pocket and tapped on the Slow Shutter Cam app. I kept experimenting with clouds, a tree, paver stones, the Mexican Sage bush, and finally, the wall of trumpet vines…which is today’s photo.

It is an 8 second exposure, and one of the things I like about the app is it shows you how much time is left (the shutter button changes to an open circle and a border line starts to appear growing longer until it completes the circle). While experimenting I moved my phone back and forth. When I saw there was only 1/4 left I stopped moving my phone. By doing that I was able to get the streaks and the leaves and vines. I thought it made a pretty cool abstract.

I just might have to do a review of this app, so be on the lookout if this is something that interests you!

One thought on “Day 9 of 365

  1. that is very cool! that was a great idea. it almost looks like a bas relief. if you hadn’t explained how you did it with the camera, i would have jumped to the conclusion you did it with layers. very cool! (worth saying again!)
