I decided to capture some movement for this weeks challenge, because the exposure was going to be unpredictable I set the camera on a tripod and used fully manual settings, ISO 160, f/5.6 and a six second shutter speed, the camera was mounted behind me with a remote shutter release on a 10 second timer so that I could press the shutter, and then start driving, I focused on the dash board. I am not sure if I like the dash lights showing where my arm has moved, but decided not to try to edit that out in the end.
My speed was only about 20mph, but the light makes things look a lot faster.
I tried a few different things with forks this week, the classic shots, bending forks, as well as making different arrangements, but after several tries, this came out as my favourite.
The best part of this image for me was the reflected forks.
I quite liked the abstract look achieved by taking my lens off the camera, something I have never tried before. It looks a bit like a zoom burst image but different, with some added light leak coming in on the top left.
To avoid getting any dust on my sensor, I decided to use an old Russian Helios 44-2 lens as it needs a lens adaptor which I could leave on the camera while unscrewing the lens itself.
