“Into the Woods”
“Movement. The forest is not a static thing. It’s alive and beckons me into it.”
– Ed Lehming
An experiment in movement that I played with recently. I’ve been doing vertical pan photos for some time and have them down to pure muscle memory and the sound of the shutter ‘slap’. Here, I introduced movement by zooming in as I made the image. My standard shutter speed of 1/4 second remains the same, but the effect is a lot different. I don’t believe it’s something I would do a lot of, but it certainly is energetic, and does feel like I’m being drawn in.
Though it would not be a go-to for me, the layers of yellow and orange as well the interlaced branches that plays here is definitely appealing.

Very Interesting and cool looking.
Yes very interesting. I would guess probably most effective when looking down a road, path, railroad tracks, etc. Given the open space it looks like that might be what you did here. I do think the color here really does help with its effectiveness.
Very nice your experiment!
It really feels like a vortex or portal sucking you into the woods…another time…maybe another universe. Very cool.
