Picture of the week XI

November 11, 2012  •  1 Comment

I'd wanted to get an image like this for a while.  Slowing the shutter with the help of a 3 stop ND filter gave just enough motion blur on the legs of the camels.  My usual style of black and white conversion doesn't work particularly well with motion blur, so I tried a digital version of Tri-X film in Silver Efex to complete the image.

Hi Phil,
Just found your site, which is very nice btw. I am wondering if you can explain more about how your usual B&W conversion didn't really work and so tried this different technique, I am unsure what the difference might be for the results?

On a side note, hopefully I will be moving to Dubai in a few months, would love to get some shots like this on the Camel Race track.
