Fan Blur

Uploaded: May 14, 2014

Description

This illustrates the blur effect of a slow shutter speed. I used a tripod. The fan movement was from my spinning by hand; the fan was not going fast. The blur is from the slow shutter speed, not from a fast fan speed. The subject matter is boring, but I tried other slow shutter speed shots without success (e.g., leaves blowing in the wind). I shot this before leaving on a business trip. I realize now I cut off the fan's handle and I should have adjusted white balance, but I can't reshoot.

Exif: F Number: 11, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 4/1 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 39.00 mm, Model: PENTAX K-5 II s

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed.
