So I have been playing with movement while taking an exposure. I get a keeper ( in my mind) every now and then. My question is for those who have done this. Do you use a tripod with a loosened ball head and then move the camera or freehand it? I have been freehanding it. The only thing I want to try and avoid is ,when I am going for the straight line effect, I end up with some curves or little 'hooks' at the end of the light trail.Any tips? I took this literally just over a half hour ago so it is pretty much right out of camera,( needs some adjusting)but just wondering how to improve.I know this doesn't work for all subjects, but the tiny bit of color in the woods yet seemed to call out for it.I love the way the undergrowth and leaves on the ground turned into glowing white whisps .I want to go back this afternoon and earlier tomorrow morning,while the sun is lower and see if I can get it with less blown areas too.I see a potential shot of just the tree trunks on the right, portrait orientation,and crop off the top of the whole image(plus I do not have an ND filter for this lens so darker will be a little easier)
