Completed Assignment – Capturing motion

Share up to 10 photos that:

freeze motion and convey motion

You need to do both, but not in the same photo

And stick with the same rules as last time, no tweaking in Photoshop.  That keeps the playing field level and helps everyone shoot more carefully.

This assignment was so much harder than I thought it would be.  I had a hard time thinking of subjects, and then shooting them.  I really need to utilize my tripod.

  1. The branches moving are very cool! Reminds me of that flying ninja movie (have not had caffeine yet). I love the blurred traffic photo, it’s very cool. Are you tweaking your colors on the camera? Meaning shooting in vivid, neutral, etc… Your colors (or maybe it’s the lens) are really great.

  2. Nope, I haven’t played with the colors… although I might have it set on the “portrait” setting. I was playing around with it and might not have set it back. I tend to shoot in the evening, which I think lends itself to richer colors.

  3. I really like the shuffle board one. Green shirt, brick wall, red puck (or whatever they are called). Looks great.
