That's her! Thanks, it was driving me insane....
Thanks @Derrel , super useful information as always, I'm on it.
I remember being fascinated by that image on your website.
Another TPF member who dabbled in this is Dagwood56. She refers to it as "in-camera motion" or ICM, I believe. ?? She does them with a zoom lens sometimes, too - all interesting effects.
Ahhh, that was the name I was looking for ....ICM
intentional camera movement...
That was a cool link. There was one within that post to a site "build and use slow focal plane shutters". Crap, it's a broken link. Man, you got my mind churning....
Driving down the road at night with my Pentax MV w/50mm focus infinity F11 Fuji 400 print film shutter open for about 2-3 minutes?? I love how the street lights "pulsate" light and leave ribbon.
My Nikon FM has a vertical-travel focal plane shutter.
The trick I have found to this "paint with light" is not to have too little or too much. Or mix a few in PS. I've shot entire rolls of 36 exp just to get one that I like. I'll sometimes use a 28mm as well.
Orientation plays into the look as well. This shot was vertical, to me it looks better as a horizontal. Or does it...???
I've dabbled in this technique with flowers. It's fun but frustrating. Difficult to control your results. I like to use a nd and a long shutter speed then start and stop movement. A twist instead of a pan can be interesting as well. Here are a couple of my favorites.
