twist part 1

As I mentioned earlier, I was hanging out on the back porch, experimenting with long exposures as it was getting dark.  I’m going to break this up into three posts, each with a different twist, yet dramatically different results.

First, a ‘normal photo’ of the pergola.



In this photo, I slowly rotated the camera while keeping the shutter open for ~4 seconds.  This is hand held and you can see I got a little more than 180 degrees before the shutter closed.  The parallel lines are from LED lights mounted in the pergola.




I swear this one has a face in the center.  Kinda creepy.
