Painting With Your Camera


By slightly moving your camera up and down during exposure, you just may end of with a work of art that resembles a painting instead of a photograph. It’s best to use a tripod to reduce side to side movement of your camera.

A slow shutter speed(1 or 2 seconds), low iso (100) and F-stop (14 to 22) should get the job done. You may need a filter to darken the subject allowing for a slower shutter speed. Trial and error and checking your LCD helps you dial in the best image and correct exposure.
