As I play with the “blur painting” concept, one of the things I notice over and over is how little time it takes to capture an interesting image and how very slight differences in shutter speed can make or break a photo. It isn’t unusual for me to take good photos at a 1/15 of a second with the monopod in low light. Just a few steps down to 1/6 or 1/5 of a second takes us into blurs. Longer exposures tend to have too much going on to be interesting unless there is a continuous sweep of motion – like you will find with dancing.
It is still early days with the blur painting concept but it is good to mix it in from time to time. It is something I just need to keep working on to know better when it gives good representations and what speeds to use.
