Valentines Photoshoot – Blurred Studio Photographs Explained

 

Below I have shown one of the blurred corset photos larger and the rest smaller because I am sure you get the idea.

I started off with two strobes, one with a gel lighting behind the model. I reduced my shutter speed to about 2 seconds and ultimately just fiddled around with the different speeds and kept my aperture at 8f or higher depending on the exposure.

The flash fired first and then the shutter was recorded, I would like to know if the effect would turn out any different or be successful if the flash fired with the shutter instead of before.

This wasn’t the effect I was going for really. but for a first time attempt I think the results are pretty strong. At first I got the model to move around between the flash and the shutter being taken but found it didn’t register on the image, so instead of causing confusion (as the model was a first timer) I just moved the camera around.

 

If there are any technical whiz kids out there who can add to this technique I would greatly appreciate the help!
