Experimental Digital Photography is a catch-all phrase for non-traditional photographic imagery created with a digital camera.
It often includes effects created with slow shutter speed exposures such as: light painting, light graffitti, painting with light, camera painting and motion photos with deliberate blur -- often called 'motion blur'. Motion effects are created by subject movement, camera movement or a combination of the two. The term can also apply to software manipulation of digital photographs to create non-traditional effects with the digital medium, effects that were not possible previously with film.
