We have visited Virginia Beach each September for about 6 years now. First it was to exhibit and sell in the Neptune Festival Art show, then last year we went, as spectators, to the same event. ( images from that here) This year, I will be leaving for the Smoky Mountains during the Festival week, so we decided to go a bit earlier.
I took a lot of pictures, and will be posting them as I finish editing them. This first batch are some experiments with the use of intentional blur. ( earlier experiments are here) I love the movement and texture that this can record, and I was also exploring the contrast between the blur and the high focus around it; The contrast of the pier with the waves, the runner with the horizon line, or the breaking waves with the background ocean.
Stay tuned for other experiments and subjects from VA Beach!
