In the last year, most of the time I dedicated to photography, was used in shooting long exposures and studying the masters of blur. I enjoyed it so much that I started a photographic project on it. I was attracted by the ghost effect the use of the flash gives to subjects in movement during long exposures.
To obtain this effect you only need a camera with manual settings and a flash. I used an Olympus XZ2 camera.

Monthly Street Challenge - SeptemberIn 2014 The-Yard-Collective launches Monthly Street Challenge with a new theme each month.The-Yard-Collective
The SEPTEMBER theme is: SLEEPING BEAUTY.

All submissions to that folder will be automatically approved without the regular voting system and there is no limit on how many photographs you can submit, so please, please, pl

Street Photography is struggling in search of newLately, Street Photography is struggling (like all forms of expression) in search of new ways to explore, a little anxiously, without understanding that everything has already been said and done, and that we are living in the “future” but we are not mentally prepared for it.Batsceba
We need to use new technology, with great simplicity, just like David Hockney.
Looking at the results achieved by this artist, you come to realize that everyone can use new technology, but not everyone can use it "artistically". But that's not what I wanted to talk about ... let's go back to the Street.
As administrator of two groups of Street Photography on Deviantart I've noticed that, lately, sociological images no longer interest people, in fact it seems that photographing harsh realities (dirty and sad) is "annoying". Photographers are rather keen to explore the use of decorative style.
