Movement: Weekly Photography Challenge - Digital Photography School

Movement: Weekly Photography Challenge

Your photographic challenge this week is to take and share a photo on the theme of movement.

motion-photography-tips.jpg

We’re looking to see images that convey a sense of motion but there’s a lot of freedom in how you go about that. For starters you might shoot a moving subject…. or you might wish to be moving yourself (i.e. shooting from a vehicle).

Then there’s a range of shooting techniques you could use – panning, zooming, slow sync flash and more.

Before you head off to shoot your image – here are a few posts from our archives that might help:

Once you’ve taken and selected the ‘Movement’ image that you’d like to share – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSMOVEMENT to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks challenge – Work challenge where there were some great shots submitted.

    My first attempts at capturing movement/motion.

    I am intrigued to learn how people get the background to be blurry and the subject in focus like in some of the images above?

    This is my attempt at capturing motion. I panned the camera as this Hooded Merganser duck took flight. I had my 300mm zoom at max in this photo.

    Ballroom dancing is a good sport to capture fast action movements, but it is also very difficult to achieve good shots because of the speed of the dancers (it is difficult to make sure that they look good)
    Here are a few:

    Apparently my first attempt to post got lost in the ethers. I will try once more.

    I was just about to capture this image at night when my elbow got hit. Disappointed we moved on in traffic. Overnight I decided to make lemonade out of lemons and re-purpose my shot ‘with movement’. I’ve titled it ‘EXCITEMENT WAS ONLY IN MY MINDS EYE’.

    Ballroom dancing is a good sport to capture fast action movements, but it is also very difficult to achieve good shots because of the speed of the dancers (it is difficult to make sure that they look good)
    Here are a few:
    Spinning

    I am intrigued to learn how people get the background to be blurry and the subject in focus like in some of the images above?

    We had a great day yesterday with friends at Purlingbrook Falls. One of the very scenic spots up in the Gold Coast Hinterland. Kids loved it too. Here they are giving me some movement for my challenge this week, alongside the waterfall. Shame that the part of the walk under the waterfall was closed off. There is always the next adventure.

    If you photograph nature then you certainly need to get used to fast shutter speeds and plenty of movement.
    Knowledge of the species and anticipating their next move is useful:
