One of the most appealing aspects of photography is being able to record, in one single frame, more than the human eye can see. We can do this in a few ways like double exposure, hidden reflections and creative use of bokeh (the blurry bits of an image
). But one of my favourite tricks is using a slow shutter speed mixed with subject movement.
I’ve used this technique in many ways over the years, starting with event photography and off-camera flash and tinkering with it along the way. Here are a few examples from some of my more creative shoots. I'm looking forward to using these techniques in some upcoming projects too, so keep an eye out for things to come!
