During this time of lockdown due to the corona virus, like many of you who love photography, I am also trying to think of and to discover new and different types of  techniques and things to try. On a couple of photography sites that I have subscribed to on YouTube I came across and watched some videos that talked about motion blur photography (see videos posted below) and it got me rather excited! So, since my sweet daughter sent me a beautiful tulip plant this Easter, I thought that I’d try it out on the final two remaining purple tulips! The first shot of the purple tulip is the one that I used in this whole series.

Motion blur is achieved by using different panning motions with your camera; back and forth, up and down, or a combination of the two, using quick or slow movements. You use different shutter speeds and aperture settings, as well. You can do it handheld or on a tripod. (I used a tripod). I really like how these turned out! Lord willing, I will try this again after I buy some different flowers at my neighborhood garden center!

After viewing the slideshow below, what do you think? Do you like these types of pictures that give a modern artistic look? Or do you only prefer pictures that simply capture the natural beauty of a flower? Let me know in the comments below…I’d love to hear what you think!  =)
