Everything Digital Photography a general introduction

Digital photographs taken with a Casio QV-100 camera.



These pictures were a complete surprise to me. I was trying to get colorful blurry pictures when the ferris wheel turned at night. I had gotten this effect on film in the past. However, digital material behaved differently. (Film is really analogue.) At times each fluorescent light made a distinct mark on the film instead of a smear.

I invite comments and would like to see any more experiments by other photographers in this kind of blurred motion digital photography.
