When all the world is green I
These semi-abstract images were shot in various woodland areas in and around my home town of Edinburgh. The form a prequel to the more completely abstract images in the When all the world is green II gallery which imagine a world in the far future where mankind has long since destroyed itself and plant lift once again reigns supreme.
These images were all created in camera using a combination of intentional camera movement and double exposure. The basics of this technique are very simple: just set a long shutter speed (generally somewhere between 0.5 and 5 seconds) and wave your camera around like a mad person while the shutter is open. Neutral density filters are often needed to get a slow enough shutter speed. Combining this technique with in-camera double exposures adds an extra layer of texture to the images.
