19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Autumn swirl

I love to be creative, experiment, and play with my camera to use different techniques or create my own. Coming from an art family on my mother's side, I have drawing skills. But in our hectic life, I prefer to "paint" by creating pictures that resemble paintings. I use my camera as a brush, without the help of Photoshop. I created this picture by using a panning technique. I used the colors of the autumn trees and the city street as my palette. Directly from the camera, no editing, no tripod used, handheld.
