Thursdays Totally Informal Transglobal Challenge for January 31, 2008 - Movement

Thursday's Totally Informal Transglobal Challenge for January 31, 2008 - "Movement"

To see how other PBasers interpreted this challenge CLICK HERE.

This was my most challenging Challenge thus far. I am so ill at ease with shutter speeds. I know next to nothing about them. I can only remember one other time that I set my camera on Tv, and that was during a snowstorm last winter when I wanted to capture the individual snowflakes as they fell. So today's theme of "movement" definitely stretched me beyond my comfort zone. But that's what it's all about. Hey, I even got out my tripod! And my husband Ed was a patient model as I kept saying, "Play some more boogie woogie!" That's when his hands fairly fly across the keys. What I didn't expect was this digital double exposure, but I kind of like it.

My regular PaD visitors might also enjoy checking out my most recent Duality. CLICK HERE to see it.

Well, I like it too! What was really nice is that you had live musical accompaniment to your photography session. I just had the radio on.

Yes, I like it!

It's a very fun shot. I like that we get a straight on shot of him along with the profile. Nice work- tell him to play some boogie-woogie for me, too. :)
Ray Rebortira31-Jan-2008 04:54
Now that's a spectral boogie woogie!!!
