Create a focal point in your interior design with movement photography art.
Impressionist photography allows you to absorb a place and time.
Movement photography creates an impression of a scene, a dreamy, soft, painterly feeling. Normally, we use cameras to capture sharp detail. But life is in motion, so why shouldn’t art also be moving? Especially when it allows us a rich experience.
If Monet were alive today and had the benefit of a digital camera in hand, would he create the gentle brushstrokes by blurring photos with movement? Perhaps his impressionist photography series would include the subtle motion of a breeze stirring up a patch of red flowers in a green field of grass. Maybe he’d capture the tussling of the branches in a tree. I believe he would have created amazing blur photo effect art.
Intentional camera motion as a technique frees me from traditional rules of photography, much like the visible brush strokes freed the impressionist painters of long ago. I express the emotion of what is before me instead of the details. For the viewer, the blurring effect frees your mind. You can imagine what you’d hear if you were in that place, what you’d smell, and who you might be with instead of analyzing the concrete nature of a normal photograph. The abstract image slows your pace down. And at each viewing of an impressionist photography wall print, you’ll experience new sensations and discoveries.
One of the effects of a long exposure time to blur part of the photo is that beautiful gradient colors emerge. Several of the painterly images for sale in this collection are great examples of colorful abstract art. Setting the camera in motion blended upbeat colors into geometric abstract art images. I fell in love with the lines and swirls, which give off a fun, youthful vibe.
Abstract impressionism photography gives us a way to view natural scenes in a new light. Take a new look at autumn, one that dances, swirls, turns, and rushes on by. Abstract fall colors open you to new sensations about how fast the season blurs by. Or see how trees seem to stand up taller and stretch out their limbs in communion with the rest of the forest.
Impressionist photography also draws us into new perceptions of traditional landscapes. First, we behold the treasures of rich golds, blushing reds, and royal purples that we may not have noticed before. Then, as the sun sets in the desert, melting into a mountain range, you can hear the lyrics of “purple mountains majesty” from that voice inside.
Rugged rock formations of canyons, wind-swept vistas, and vast spaces open up to us, drawing us into an abstract land: a place where we no longer have the precision of sharp horizons and solid ground but a gentle place where we can rest.
I love how practicing intentional camera motion requires reflection, where I must immerse myself in the mood of a place before I begin. This type of art emphasizes a deeper appreciation of the little moments. For instance, as I sat at a pool one day, I realized that after a swimmer had completed several laps, the surface of the pool was dancing. But it wasn’t only the waves that created that image of dancing. The fence line around the pool was casting shadows. The clouds diffused the sunlight, creating patterns of shifting abstract geometry. I got a few funny looks from the other sunbathers at the pool, but I had to try to photograph this ephemeral design.
