Operating on slow shutter speed: Sunrise Mall, Citrus Heights and Old Roseville
Slow Shutter Speed, that’s the name of this blog. Why? When I began this passion, I was overwhelmed with all of it. I had a feeling that this was going to be a long journey and thought that name was fitting. Of course now, it has another meaning for me: using slow shutter speed to blur objects, create abstracts and to shoot at night.
I love shooting lights at night, playing with the zoom and blurring the motion of whatever I’m shooting. So, when I heard there was a small carnival at a local mall, I took my camera and tripod down there. I had a blast, especially when people stopped and asked me whether I was from a newspaper or magazine! I’m not ready for that, but it was nice to be asked that question.
Then, a couple of nights later, I went to Old Roseville to shoot the two theaters on Vernon Street. Again, I wanted to capture the marquee and play with the zoom effect.
I’m still learning on “slow shudder speed,” but I feel like I’m not taking snapshots any longer.

Thanks Lucy. I love this type of photography, and it’s easy. Slowing down your shutter speed and using a tripod is about it! Try it. I’d love to see what you come up with.
