Too much red wine?


I bought myself a book on creative photography techniques recently and have been trying out a few ideas. This was my first attempt at an impressionistic multi-exposure. I think I need to be even bolder with the technique to avoid it looking like camera shake, an earthquake or too much red wine. (I hadn't touched a drop, honestly!) Still, it's such fun trying out these ideas.

It at least gives a slightly different view of the much-photographed stretch of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal between Saltaire's two huge mills: Salts on the left and the New Mill on the right. The boat was nicely placed for a photograph too. You have more chance of seeing one in the short-term day moorings here in the summer, when there are more hire boats around. People often want to stop and explore Saltaire.

  1. With this new "all shook up" method one transforms a blue narrow boat into a blue wide-beamed boat!

  2. The photo is rather neat in an abstract way. I wonder what the method will do for flowers.

  3. I'm glad you explained or I'd have been off to town for some new glasses!

  5. Interesting. I'd like to see what happens when you push it farther--say whisky instead of just red wine.

  6. Funny, we are on the same path. I got a new photography book a few days ago, too, and tried shaking things up with different ways of looking at every day things. My own conclusion is that mine were awful and I won't be trying it again. Want a free photography book?
