When all the world is green II
These abstract images were shot in various woodland areas in and around my home town of Edinburgh. They 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 double exposures adds an extra layer of texture to the images.
This gallery has now been renamed "When all the world is green II" and it has been joined by what might be called a prequel gallery of images (called "When all the world is green I") that are somewhat less abstract and more recognisably trees.
