    9 creative photo ideas to try in January: shoot woodland abstracts

    Shooting woodland abstracts using intentional blur is a simple technique that allows you to produce more expressive pictures.

    One way to do this is to spread Vaseline on an old skylight filter to soften parts of a scene. However, a technique that allows you to keep your fingers covered with warm gloves is to set a slow shutter speed and pan the camera to create dramatic streaks.

    This is the perfect technique to try on overcast days, or when there’s a little colour left in the sky at sunset, as you’ll need low light levels to give you longer shutter speeds.

    Get started today…
    * Use small apertures and low ISOs to give you extended exposure times.
    * Consider mounting your camera on a tripod, as this will ensure motion blur occurs in just one direction.
    * Try experimenting with different combinations of exposure times and panning speeds for varying results.
