A walk in the park...and a little experimentation

Wonderful pics... I like the experimentation. Is that an effect built into the camera, or a software thing?

Neither, Phy. It's a Lisa thing.

As she described it, she does a time exposure (I think we used to call it "bulb" exposure - meaning the shutter stays open as long as you hold down the button) and trips the flash at the beginning. The flash captures the main focal point (the face, in this case) and then she slowly pans the camera from one side to another for two or three seconds which blurs the background.

That would be the "little experimentation" of the title.

Now, Lisa will probably set me (us) straight with her own explanation, but I'm just telling you what I saw.

It was a fun time!

I like that third one with the trees reflecting in the water.

I should add that Robin took the second to last one.

Chilly air and warm hearts. I love these.

Great Pics.

Robin is the next generation's photographer, huh? She's off to a good start.

I'm surprised that the experimental shots are black and white. Was there a trick to that, too?

I think the third one is my favorite, as well.
