DANCERS SPACE-TIME EXPERIMENTAL DIGITAL PHOTOS
Experimental Digital Photography (EDP) by Rick Doble -- online exhibit
My latest experiments with motion photos of space and time taken at slow shutter speeds.
These are real photographs of an audience at a rave concert a number of years ago; they were not created with computer software or with computer graphics.

ABOUT THESE DANCER SPACE-TIME DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHS:
A number of years ago a bar that my wife and I had been frequenting decided to have a rave music night. Since I had taken pictures at the bar during performances many times before, I took my camera to this event. While at other concerts I had taken pictures of the performers, at this concert I took photos of the audience which glimmered in the lights that spilled from the stage and onto the dance floor.
If you want to know about the camera settings and techniques I used to make these photos, read my paragraph below on this page about technical information.
ABOUT THE ORDER OF PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE ONLINE EXHIBIT
To demonstrate the range of effects with space-time photography, I put photos that are reasonably clear at the beginning while the later ones in the exhibit are more abstract and more distorted. I did this deliberately to show how very different photographs can occur in the same situation and with the same lighting, since the amount of distortion depends on the movement of the horses and riders along with my control of camera movement.

Read about my first digital photography experiments which I called 'Painting With Light'. These essays about 'Painting With Light' explain in detail how I started pushing the boundaries of traditional photography with the new power of the digital camera.

MORE TECHNICAL INFORMATION ABOUT THIS ONLINE EXHIBIT:
These digital photos were taken using a slow shutter speed that varied from 2 seconds to 4 seconds. I took these shots in available light at an ISO of 80 which was the only ISO available many years ago with an early digital camera. Because of the low ISO, I was forced to shoot at a low f/number from f/2.8-4. I focused manually to avoid any focusing errors in low light, errors that are often made by an automatic focus system in dim situations. All pictures were taken handheld.
