Water portrait by Bill Viola. Stills from a moving image which shows the movement of the water. Three prominent colours (blue, skin-colour and brown) which creates a simplistic effect, focusing on the movement of the water and facial expressions.
This technique is called "zoom burst" where you take a long exposure and zoom in or out while the shutter is still open. With just a little practice and experimentation, it's a really easy effect to achieve. Greg Foster Photography on Flickr www.photoideashop.com
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968, dir. Stanley Kubrick) “I think that 2001, like music, succeeds in short-circuiting the rigid surface cultural blocks that shackle our consciousness to narrowly limited areas of experience and is able to cut directly through to areas of emotional comprehension. In two hours and twenty minutes of film there are only forty minutes of dialogue.
