Slowing down in New York

I hope my GIF’s don’t give you all massive headaches… but, I sort of love making them. Aaaaand, I had quite a few photo sets to work with from New York.

On the last day of our New York trip JessStephanie, and I played around with my camera. I wanted to take a series of photos where all the surrounding items were blurry/moving, and one person was standing still.

We wandered around looking for the perfect spot. I needed to find a base to stabilize my camera (since I had set my shutter speed very low) and a space with a lot of movement in the background. Luckily there were a few signs/posts to use for a base, and New York is pretty much crazy busy non stop!

Aaand, that’s what I made! I am in love with the GIF of Jess. Her GIF used 16 photos and the other two I used 4 – 6 photos. This inspires me to make more. Can’t wait. Who’s up for a photo shoot and some GIF action? Hee.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. My sister is getting married tomorrow. Sooooo, I’m insane busy. I should apologize ahead of time about the massive amount of BlogHer posts you’re about to see. But, it’s all fun. I was there for 6 days. So amazing.

Happy weekend!
