Fantasy Park in White

These two shots date back to mid February. I picture them as a set. To get this effect I switched my camera to shutter priority and set the shutter speed top 1/15th of a second, which is pretty slow. I then aimed my camera a bit lower than the composition I was after. Next I began to raise my camera rather quickly, trying hard to make a one fluid upward motion without moving side to side. I snapped the shutter just as I began moving upward. This caused the vertical blurring you see here. It’s not an exact science and took my a few tries before I got something I liked. In post processing I converted to black & white, added a brown tint to it, dialed back the clarity and upped the contrast and black level until I got the look I was after. I find this sort of effect works best with vertical lines, like trees in a park. This particular park is behind Queens Park, home to our provincial government. Hope you like it. Happy Saturday.
