Achieving That Motion Blur Effect Using Your Horizon Camera

2012-12-12 1

The objective of this quickie tipster is to increase the possibilities of having motion blur on your Horizon shots. How? Read on!

When shooting moving subjects using Horizon Cameras, the direction of your subject should be from left to right. Since the lens of these Russian beauties are panning, or swinging from left to right, then the subject is most likely to appear as ‘moving’ or having ‘motion blur’ if you shoot subjects moving from left to right. You should not shoot against the direction of the lens for a more blurry shot.

Also, you can use the night mode or slow shutter setting of your Horizon Camera in broad daylight but remember to use slow films or redscale films to avoid over exposure. Steady hands are required too!

All photos above were shot using my Horizon Kompakt. Go ahead and try it with yours too!

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

    Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

In the comments section someone asked, “Does anyone know what kind of camera he uses or how he gets his pictures to look the way they do?” Krug was on to something. He did something wildly intriguing, one that looked to have a secret formula.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Black and White Photography: The Forms of the World

    Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
