Moving Forward 2: Part 2 of a 5-part study of motion

August 26, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

As part of my Motion Series, I travelled to Seattle.  I found some inspiration in the airport.  I’ve found airports both excited and absolutely horrifying at different times in my life.  There is the hustle and bustle of an airport that brings about anxiety.  There is also the marvel that millions of people every day move from all corners of the earth into these small spaces as they travel from one end of the country to another in merely one day.  You find all kinds of people in airports.  There are those plugged into cell phones with earbuds in ignoring all the movement, the families struggling with far too many bags and strollers, those that insist if they stand in the line to board, the plane will be ready faster, the business travelers tied immediately to business calls as soon as the flight attendant welcomes cell phone use, and the ever-exhausted traveler just waiting for the constant movement to end.  It’s an interesting place to see a slice of life.

 

I had my camera, a tripod, and an Neutral Density (ND) filter set with me. I used the ND filters to take long exposures during the daytime.  For these shots, I set my camera on the tripod and used a slow shutter speed to capture motion.

For this last shot, I also used a long shutter speed and an ND filter, but I placed the camera on the handrail of the moving walkway.  I think it made for an interesting perspective.

Next week, I'll talk about capturing motion in the evening.  It has been a really fun series!
