Terrific Twirls – check out how they are created

Creative new ideas – terrific twirls

The date was 30th March, photographers around the UK were heavily debating whether or not a walk was considered exercise if you took your camera with you! With opinions split, many took to searching out new projects to experiment with.

The trouble with social media is that we all fall into our tribes. We find like-minded people who will share their ideas and help us. For this reason, I am unaware how far this craze truly reached. All I know is that my social media feeds were full of them. And before we knew it photographers were now debating whether or not you could call them photographs!

The reality is that they are relatively easy to produce, as long as you have some photo editing software. In my case, I used Photoshop and followed this tutorial on YouTube:
