Kungsbacka Forest


You might look at this image and think it was made in Photoshop with a motion blur. In fact, the image is straight-out-of-the-camera (SOOC). Sometimes an image like this is called “panning”, but in this case it is more like “active shifting”. So, I used a 24mm tilt-shift lens to create the motion effect. With an exposure time of 1 second, I had enough time to rapidly shift the lens from low to high during the exposure. This was the result. With a tilt-shift lens (which is a specialty lens mostly used in architectural realism photography because it allows your vertical lines to remain perfectly straight), it is very important to set the camera perfectly aligned with the horizon and level. So when you shift the lens the lines remain straight.  In this case the lines are the trees. Enjoy! – Mabry
