City Stars

Here are a few dual axis camera rotations taken with the Canon 6D. My mother's house in Portugal has a view filled with city lights at a distance. That's the only light source in these photos. In a long exposure, I rolled as well as panned the camera at uneven intervals while also holding a mozaic of color gels in front of the lens. It required quite a bit of practice to achieve the star-like patterns. I do like that it's kind of random but still centered.
