Create unique abstract images with a swipe
Fireweed (camera swipe)
When I find myself overwhelmed or just need a burst of creativity, I look no further than using a deliberate pan blur, or “swipe” to create an
abstract photograph. The idea behind a swipe is to use a relatively long exposure and move the camera either up/down or left/right while dragging the shutter. I find that with the right subjects, I can create some pretty fun images!
Swipes are just one of the many topics I cover in my
complete guide to long exposure photography. Video: How to perform a long exposure swipe
