Slow Shutter Panning Shot: The Unwinding Film

Unwinding Film is a conceptual photographic artwork that uses intentional camera movement and a slow shutter speed. The image is shot under a seaside pier and the colour palette reflects the blue shades from the sky and sea.

The intentional horizontal panning motion of the camera gives the impression of a series of frames captured within a single image. The pier supports serve as frame markers, breaking the picture into multiple sections.

The picture has an aesthetic reminiscent of a series of negatives being unwound. The visual illusion created by intentional camera movement makes one picture appear as if it belongs to a larger sequence.

The photograph plays with the viewer's perception and on the nature of a photograph as a single, static moment versus a dynamic sequence of linked events.
