The owl was back yet again and it was getting dark. I decided to try a long shutter on him to see the effect. It came out with a nice effect which I hope to perfect, or at least get better at. They are a little dark but a wider aperture should help and him being closer, which he does, too.
While walking I also tried zooming on a long shutter in the woods. The effect is quite striking and I hope to get better results on this too.
The last was macro and a narrow aperture to blur the background. This one needs a more interesting subject as the focus, maybe an insect. Unfortunately it is now getting cold and these are harder to find. Maybe when its warmer I can seek out some insect stars.
