Impression, Bamboo Forest - Quinta

This collection of photographs was the result of a happy mistake while walking through the Hakone Garden's bamboo forest in Saratoga. I was messing around with my camera on manual mode, trying different angles and motions when I noticed the resulting images resembled impressionist paintings.  I liked how the bamboo forest was implied though color, light and movement, so I sat there for a while and tried different things until I got the look I wanted.  All of these photographs are single shots with very minor adjustments in Photoshop.

I will put up one piece every Monday, Thursday and Saturday for the next three weeks.
