A Photograph Of Calm

I was asked to make a photograph of the emotion “tranquility”. This was always a favorite subject of mine: How precise the camera is as a method of capture, but how difficult it is to deal with the intangible – emotions or ideas. Deciding to take an experimental and abstract route, I began to work with long shutters and in-camera multiple exposures outside my house. No editing necessary. For this image I aimed my camera at a Japanese Maple tree, opened the shutter and quickly shook my camera as I panned down to some green bushes. Although technically a photograph, I believe it speaks well of: calm / tranquil / serene.
