As today’s Tuesday Technique Topic is part 1 of 3 on abstract photography, as I have approached it thus far, it might be nice to share an outlier from this part of my portfolio with you.
The title of this image is a reference to the theory in physics that unifies all consistent versions of superstring theory. If we look deep enough into the underlying structure of all that surrounds us, its structure shall become apparent and reveal the great secrets of the universe.
Technical Aspects of the Image
I created this image using a zoom-blur technique with an exposure time of appr. 1/3 of a second. The camera I used a Canon EOS 5D MkII with a 24-105 lens. It took about 3 or 4 attempts to really get the effect that I was looking for, as I wanted the stringiness to come through while acquiring the speed of the universe throughout the edges of the image.
Hope you enjoy this little exploration of the universe.
