A last bit of Arizona here, before we move back to Connecticut. Once I get permission, look forward to posting the Antelope Canyon shots as well!
These were all taken in northern Arizona, with exposure times of several seconds - I think I topped out at 20 seconds for a few in this series.
The whimsical patterns and shapes are my favorite. Little fairies frolicking through the desert :)
I've been exploring motion in images for years, but let's be real: "motion" covers a lot of semantic ground. Camera gestures were my go-to at the beginning. We all remember that great purple cauliflower shot. Whole-body movement was a natural next step, twisting from the core instead of just my arm.
But there's a lot more to discover. Take these images, for example. Was the camera moving? No. Was I moving? No. But the plane taxi just seemed like a perfect opportunity to capture the lovely landing strip lights.
I love these lights.
