Spinning

Contributed By J Bryan




For my studio portrait assignment, I had everyone spin in a swivel chair and shot with a reduced shutter speed to get the blurring effect. After cropping each picture to a square, I layered them together and adjusted the opacity of each layer to blend them into one image.

The picture is so cool. I love how the person is blurred out and you cam't really tell what is going on. Thats what makes this picture so mysterious. I like the colors you also added in this picture. Really good job!

This is a really cool picture. I like how its different images of the girl. Its like I can't focus on just one picture, i just want to look at it as a whole.
really cool.

I love the whole concept of your picture. It was a really clever idea and the way you layered them all together makes a really eye-catching composition. It looks like a picture that would be hanging on a wall. I can't wait to see your final studio project!

I really like how this turned out! I love your idea on putting everyone's blurred picture as one. The colors look really cool also. Nice job on your studio project! :)

Man, I adore the way you used a slow shutter speed and contrast of dark and light and movement and everything to get this shot. It feels so surreal and someone could confuse it for some sort of Photoshop trick, but really it’s just the magic of photography. The positioning is great. Everything is great. Keep going.

I like the idea for this picture. The settings on the camera were good for the image. The picture is fairly confusing, which makes it even better.

This is a really cool photograph. I like the way the colors blend, and it seems like the person has two sides. I also like the outer blue rim of the photograph. It almost seems to give this picture a mysterious look. Very good job!

The colors in this are amazing. I love the warm yellows and reds against the purple and black in the back-- a very nice contrast. I also like how abstract the blurriness made the figures. Wonderful picture!

I really like this a lot, even though you can't see the subjects face. The colors that are present in this look great together and I think you did a great job!

The movement captured from spinning seems to add a sense to just live life and do what is fun to you. While listening to the song "Forever Young" by Jay-Z might complement this picture.

You're such a creative photographer. I was a little confused as to what you were going to do with a bunch of motion blur images of people spinning around when I learned what your idea was, but you definitely made it work. I love this. It's just so interesting to look at.

Interesting photo! Seems like a good time exposure, and I think the spin turned out well. I really like the color change from purple to the lighter yellow. I think it would look really cool if you were able to get the hair to spin out more, but that might be tough. Good shot! - AF SPHS

I really like how the final piece of this came out. When we all did the initial photo shoot in class I thought that the way you had the camera settings done was sort of strange for just the one image. But blending them together had a very nice effect. Good coloring as well.

I really like how instead of using only one person for the whole effect, you have many different people layered so it is different faces and bodies emerging from one singular object.
