Chapter 10. SELECTING TRANSLUCENCY AND G... > SELECTING MOTION BLUR AND CLOTH

SELECTING MOTION BLUR AND CLOTH

I love to photograph motion blur and drag shutter effects, which are created using a camera shutter speed of one-quarter of a second or slower in low-light situations. The painterly effects are surprising and refreshing—sadly, selecting them can be less invigorating.

The flag in figure 10.23 was photographed in the studio, but it really needs to be outside, as shown in figure 10.24. My strategy was to use the channel with the best contrast in combination with the Pen tool to select both the solid and the blurred parts of the flag. As often happens when you mix studio photos with environmental ones, the color of the light doesn't match, as shown in the interim image in figure 10.25.
