Blurry Abstract Style

Hey Fstoppers Friends,

What do you think of this weird, streaky abstract photography?

Very well done to accentuate the movement. What is your process?

...tHANKs Paul. f11@2sec ISO 100. This is a two light set up. A tungsten light on the left to capture the blur and a flash on the right to stop the motion. I use 2nd curtain sync to fire the flash at the end of the exposure. It's an unpredictable, abstract style that doesn't make a mess like throwing flour around :)

Great shots and very smooth, fluid lines. Love the 2nd shot for the mostly white trail.

The second image especially is a knock-out, Hank! It captures the sense of that balletic movement beautifully The third is very striiking, but the blurred, streaky part, doesn't complement a violinist, who would normally stand still, as well.

I do admire your creative, experimental approach.

You could also post these in Minimalism, Abstract, Experimental; it's a very receptive and active Group.
