It’s all about Motion for technical week!

We will stretch ourselves with new skills and revisit some old ones. Photographing motion can be tricky but, with the right shutter speed and a little patience, it can also be FUN!  Adding motion to your image can help tell the story, convey an emotion, or even set the overall mood.

Water makes a great subject to practice shutter speeds from streams to streaming water!  

Tips:

  • Faster shutter speeds will freeze the action and capture the details.  Use a SS of 1/250 or higher.
  • With slower shutter speeds, movement is captured as a blur - SS of 1/60 or lower.
  • (My shutter speed was 1/4000 to stop the streaming water mid-air!)
