Congratulations to Henrik Spranz for winning the recent Motion Blur Assignment with the image, “Weave.”
“For many weeks I’ve had the idea to shoot a photo like this using a panning technique combined with an external flash during a heavy snowfall,” explains Spranz.
“All I had to wait for were the perfect conditions. Then the forecast for the next day seemed perfect, so I took a day off work to drive to a forest I know to do some experimental photography. This photo involved using my external flash and panning my camera from top to bottom with a shutter time of 1/3 sec. As I’ve wanted to have an abstract result, the shutter time was perfect. The curly lines of all the snowflakes falling down added a lot to the impact of the photo. It’s a single exposure and I was very happy with the result. With having a concept I’ve shot many other photos on that day—including another assignment winner.”
