Look at Me

Look at Me!

Every truck that passes our house causes our Morky, Hemingway, to go crazy and run back and forth at high speed until he is exhausted. Especially when the US Postal Service truck comes by. Here he is in full run mode taking a second to smile for the camera (Best of 273 photos taken in three minutes).

2023 02 BlurTheAction 1069 marco ciavolino BTS


Right - let's get cracking with a bit of a hybrid challenge involving technical as well as creative skills. This week, we want photos that Blur The Action - or to put it another way, photos that tell a STRONGER story with motion blur. While most photos are shot with the intent of being as sharp as possible, photos with intentional blurring of motion give an added sense of movement to the viewer. This could be a dancer on stage, a car passing by, or stars in the night sky. The obvious method of blurring movement is to make your shutter speed slower. Panning or even combining multiple exposures in one shot are other advanced methods you could try out if you wanted. But paying attention to the technical aspect is just one facet of this challenge (of every challenge, really) - your photo should be telling a story or capturing a moment in time that works well and resonates with you and your viewer. The basics of composition, framing and creativity are something you should always keep in mind. So start looking up at cloud movements, or look down at the tides. Maybe kids on a playground swing will grab your attention. Star trails, ICM (impressionist photography), sports photography, light painting, there are so many cool ideas and subjects for you to try out with a slow shutter. But do remember, we're not looking for out-of-focus shot or bokeh blur - we're looking for motion blur, which is the blur caused by the passage of time.
