I’ve been having a lot of fun with the SlowShutter app lately. What do you think, are the images interesting or too cluttered?

    I love them all. Except maybe the top right car – that one just looks out of focus to me. The rest look interesting Love it. I’ll have to try it. See you at p s w!

    Love the colors – love the movement. Keep having fun.

    I really like them. there seems to be enough of a subject in each of them to give the eye somewhere to land. Especially the one in the middle with the pink, awesome

    Very very interesting. Good also the 3×3 composition for scene consistence and colors!
    With my compliment.

    Very nice. It´s just like with any photo: subject + technique + receiver = unique experience and these work for me.

    These photos look like you used a flatbed scanner, Michael Golembewski style.
    Julieanne, I really admire your photography, encaustic mixed media work and approach to teaching. It’s good to have this excuse to tell you that.

    Beautiful images. Enough real information, but plenty room for creative expression. Nice! 🙂

    Hi Julieanne,

    This is so good, sharing it on my page I hope someday you can come back to share this in Manila.

    I like them of course!

    I been following you on instagram for sometime. The imagines are great. I remember you mentioning that you do not photograph people, once you starting using the slow shutter, people started to appear in your images. I love your style. The images are very very interesting. Keep it up!

    Thank you for all of your feedback. I think that one of the reasons that I enjoy playing with that app is that it allows me to let go of the rules that I typically apply when photographing. I like the idea of a letting go and discovering the “happy accident”. : )

    They rock so much movement and life

    Bom gosto apurado e muita competência nestes trabalhos. Parabéns!

    Great images – there is enough information there to get the imagination working and the result is quite painterly.

  • By Gordon - 1:10 AM on March 17, 2012  

    Defintely worth a close rlook. I like the kind of pictures. thought I never would have think about it without your posting here.

  • By Gordon - 1:14 AM on March 17, 2012  

    oh perhaps you can tell which slow shuitter app you use. I see there are several around on itunes. thanks

    • By Julieanne Kost - 7:26 AM on March 17, 2012  

      Sure, I’m using Slow Shutter Cam.

      • By Gordon - 3:10 AM on March 19, 2012  

        thanks!!!! 😉

    Julieanne: While I like the results of your work, stretching your creative muscle (to me) is more about the experience of the work than it is about the result. If you’re doing something new and you’re having fun/learning while doing it, then you’re stretching yourself and your work… the results become secondary.

    I’ve been intrigued by them since I first saw them coming across your feed. They remind me of picking up the Holga a few years ago, and just shooting multiple exposures for a summer. Even now, I look at some of those shots and think about how I wish I had some similar way to achieve the effect inside my digital camera.

    I find your work so creatively stimulating – please keep the experimentation going!

    • By Julieanne Kost - 8:37 PM on March 18, 2012  

      Thanks Rick. I just spend the Saturday shooting at Point Lobos and Sunday creating some slideshows for a presentation that I’m going to do at Photoshop World. Although the two were unrelated, it felt so good to just put technology aside for a few days and just “create” this weekend! Have a great week, -j

  • By Julieanne Kost - 8:35 PM on March 18, 2012  

    Excellent point Mike. Thanks for the reminder. : )

  • By George Quiroga - 8:55 PM on March 18, 2012  

    Yes I like these motion studies because they are different from a camera shake. They seem more fluid yet impressionistic.

    Thanks for all of the great tutorials and sources of inspiration such as this.

  • By Kevin - 11:32 PM on March 18, 2012  

    I’ve often taken shots like this and said oh crap, shutter speed was off! Seems to me to do it intentionally is like making crap, art. Or to put it another way, there are no mistakes.

    I really like the thought of where this could go as a creative tool, but for my taste these are just slightly to much effect. If there was a way to increse or decrease the effect then I think you have a winner..but its all subjective of course.
