Relating to my theme of movement, i chose to experiment with long exposure photography which was inspired by the work of the Bragaglia Brothers. This use of long exposure creates a blurred effect in the figure’s movement which is very contrasting when compared to previous work i have produced using short exposure times, where the image and figure translate a static state of a particular movement. it is suggested by the Bragaglia Brothers that, their method of long exposure captures the essence of movement, revealing its ‘soul’ and expression.
Focusing on my chosen topic of how movement by the body can be captured, this image is a result of some photography experiments i produced. With the use of a fast shutter speed the figure is captured in a sharp image other than blurred out. This has been a common debatable element throughout my previous experiments on which method of photography represents movement best; the sharp vs. the blur.
