I’ve wanted to try this for a long time and have been waiting for the leaves to change. I went to the trees surrounding my house and all these photos are as I took them.
To get this painted look I simply moved my camera to the right as soon as I hit the shutter, keeping the camera in motion until it closed. Similar to a panning effect.
As I pressed the shutter on this photo, I moved the camera around in a circular motion.
These last two photos were taken with my camera lens at 24mm and then zooming into 200mm as soon as I hit the shutter. It took a few tries to get the look I wanted and am loving the results!
