Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #212 Motion

This week, Patti invites me to explore the movement of objects or people in my photos. You have several options to do this. Here’s one way: set your camera on auto and let it do most of the work. It will automatically increase the shutter speed and freeze the action. You can also manually adjust the speed settings. That’s when the real fun begins.

Sometimes I just plan to have motion be my subject.

Taffy in motion
Jelly Bean River
Patriotic Motion

It is always tricky to capture animals in motion. Here I stopped the action with a fast shutter speed.

Sometimes a slower speed enhances the motion.

Just tucking myself in!

Sometimes a slow speed will create a ghostlike image.

I hope that you enjoyed my quick tour of my motion photographs!

  1. Hi, Marlene. I just found your post in the Reader today! I’m so glad I did. (Your pingback didn’t show up on my site. Ah…WordPress). You have a wonderful collection here….the carousel, lens zooming, the taffy, the jellybeans…and of course the hora. Just terrific.
