Taken at the twilight prologue criterium at the 2009 Tour Down Under. The image was shot on the now discontinued Kodak colour infrared film and as with the rest of this series involved both panning and slow shutter speed to achieve a degree of abstraction. The distinctive colours and grain are characteristic of the film. The motion blur was captured in-camera by using camera panning and slow shutter speeds – ranging between 1/15th and 1/2 second. A 28mm wide angle lens further added to the distortion and impression of speed. The camera was a vintage (early ’80s) Pentax K1000. Digital manipulation was limited to minor contrast correction and dust removal post scanning.
