Shoot 36 Photos



Shoot photos showing frozen motion and different photos showing motion blur. These photos are not meant to be "before and after" photos. Don't shoot the same subject matter for motion and frozen motion unless the subject matter is consistent like a waterfall.


Use faster shutter speeds (250 or greater) to freeze motion

Use slower shutter speeds (30 or less) to show blur

  • Don’t forget to make equivalent exposure adjustments
  • The frozen subject matter should look like it was actually moving.  It’s okay if there is a little blur
  • No cars, motorcycles or buses.  Trains are okay.  Think about water and other naturally moving things
  • If people are jumping or on swings, make sure you don’t shoot them at the bottom or top of their motion, because at that point they are not actually moving
  • Check out the work of Ralph Eugene Meatyard for some unconventional uses of motion
