  4. what I would do differently is I would shoot in better spots then what i did now.
  5. I think my photos should be posted on the photo blog because I have good ideas but I wouldn’t say I’m better then any other students.


Action and Motion

First to capture motion is you must use a slow shutter speed. you see, the reason for motion blur is simply that your camera’s shutter remains open for an amount  period of time. you get motion blur when your shutter speed is long, where as you freeze the action when your shutter speed is short. If your shutter speed is too fast you’re not going to capture much movement. But if you use the right shutter speed you won’t need your subject to move much at all before you start to see blur. theirs two types of motion have your subject move and have your camera move.

As you know, the shutter speed is good at achieving a beautiful blurred. Even small changes will have a big impact upon your shot so you should use a camera mode that gives you full control over your camera’s shutter. You have two options. First, you can switch your camera to full Manual mode. It’ll work well, and it’s a good idea for more experienced photographers. but in Manual mode, you’ll also need to select your aperture and ISO. The longer the speed, the more light that will get into your camera, and the brighter your photos will be. If you’re shooting in Shutter Priority, your camera will actually narrow the aperture for you. As soon as it detects a slow shutter speed, it’ll close down the aperture and deliver a well-exposed shot. You can adjust your ISO in Manual mode or Shutter Priority mode, so simply dial in a low ISO such as 100 and watch as your exposure decreases.
