Harrison and 24th Street, San Francisco 2011

In early October I started experimenting with Impressionist Photography. I had read an article by Eva Polak, and had been studying her work for a couple of weeks and thought the Aspens of the Eastern Sierras would be a great place to try some techinques. I tried “movement” and “panning”, and failed brilliantly! When I got home and uploade my frames I deleted every frame. I also tried defocusing. I kept 2 of those.

I’ve continued to play with the movement technique, but still am not acheiving the result I want. I’m having much better results with defocusing. I used that here in this night city street scene. I’m going to continue to play with the movement technique. Hopefully one day I’ll get it.
