April 17 Theme: Blurred Motion

April's theme is MOTION....blurred motion. Not freezing motion. There is a million ways to do this if one gets creative. Some of our group have done this many times before, like for example waterfalls (long exposure) and I would say if they have done that they might want to think out of the box and do something different.(expand their portfolio). But if someone has never done that, it's a great thing to learn how to do. But it can be sports, birds, still life, there is a myriad of things that could be done. I wanted to choose something that gives the freedom to not have to go outside if they so chose to, since our last one was outside. Btw Panning is of course included in case anyone wants to do that for motion.

Sheesh adds:

Sorry I forgot to mention that it has to be in camera other words no PS motion added. :)
(that is for you guys!)
I know your tricks!

Sheesh adds:

Ken asked me to come up with some images as example for us to have some visuals of what I am talking about with blurred motion so here ya go.

Here is a place you can go to view some blurred motion shots... you can see how it is unending the ideas and things you can come up with. I didn't go to BP cause (I am sure they have them) but I would like us to think outside of the box of BP. (it is possible )

One thing you usually look for in a motion shot but not all motion shots is something blurred and something sharp... That conotates motion...and stillness.

So here is a link ....there are MANY MANY Photos for you to look through. This is a stock site. :)

Happy Hunting! ;)



In case you don't have time to go through a lot of images ... I am writing
down some that are in here and some I have thrown in as well.

tossing spagetti- creative idea! (that was in this stock site)
boxes falling on a man- I know Dennis want to set this up using Ken as the
golfer ball in motion
Runner, skaters, walkers, bikers in motion
Planes, trains and automobiles
car motion at night... like skyline (still) lights of the cars blurred in
Flowers blurred by wind and slow shutter or by camera panning
Flag blowing in wind
musician in motion
machinery in motion
stars in the sky at night use tripod...long exposure they become lines in
the sky
Blurred trees in motion with someone standing still- this is an idea I threw
in that I want to do someday
Birds in flight or any animal for that matter- horses are great
kid swining
Dad throwing kid in air
fingers playing the piano
Chef chopping veggies fast- I did this in a asian restaurant once
Ferris wheel
people on escalator
Nina using a food processor ;)
Mary chasing her fiance Keith around the block to model for her again
Cathy chasing that elusive shot in the woods ....
Darryl chasing his tail... ;) jk
The list is endless and this just scratches the I am sure you
guys have plenty of ideas on your own. But if not hope this helps.
