We often strive for technically perfect photographs, going to great lengths to perfect our camera technique and post-processing and often investing a lot of money in the best equipment we can afford. But sometimes, it can be fun to move away from those sorts of shots for a bit and explore more creative image-making processes. This awesome video tutorial will show you one such process, which will allow you to make your photos look like paintings.
Coming to you from Micall Widell, this great video tutorial will show you how to make photos that look like paintings. Widell accomplishes this through a technique known as “intentional camera movement.” The majority of the time, we try to keep our cameras as still as possible to ensure sharp images, but when using intentional camera movement, you will use a longer shutter speed than normal and purposely move the camera a bit during the exposure (though not enough to render the frame totally unrecognizable). This can create interesting effects that make the image look like a painting or illustration. The neat part is that if you don’t like the result, you can just try again; every frame is unique. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Widell.
