I am very far behind my weekly challenges but wanted to keep posting them as I am enjoying everyone’s take on them.
This weeks challenge is movement, some tips and ideas include the following:
~ use shutter speed – for objects or things that move fast you want to use something around 1/1000th. The faster the shutter speed, the sharper the focus on your subject or use a slow shutter speed to capture motion blur
~ 1/1000 – perhaps to freeze helicopter blades
~ 1/500 is a good rule of a thumb as a good starting point for stopping motion that is fairly fast
~ 1/250 stop the movement of a bike
~ Extremely slow shutter speeds—20 or seconds for example—can make moving subjects seem to disappear. A good example of this is shooting a roadway at night from a tripod.
~ panning – move your camera with your subject
~ use your continuous shooting mode
date: finally had a chance to capture the photo for this week’s theme. It was taken at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. The settings for this waterfall picture was shutter speed 1/2 f: 22 ISO 200. I used a ND filter as well as a tripod.
