Experimentation

One nice thing about shooting digital is the instant feedback, especially when experimenting with a new technique. In terms of learning technical skills, it can really speed up the learning curve. And it can be great to see what you get when you're just fooling around. This image of our cat (rather evil looking here, don't you think?) is the result of a long shutter speed and rotating the camera while making the picture. No post processing apart from cloning out a few dust blobs. I'm not sure why, but I like it.

Hey, promise you were rotating the camera and not the cat?
Yes,I agree digital instant feedback is wonderful. And the no waste (except for the hours) spent experimenting gives us permission to play.

I love abstract shots like this...this one is really nice. Sharpness isn't everything!
