The Nature Of Photography: Moving Subjects
This subject is a fun one to talk about. When shooting moving subjects, or subjects that move a lot, always use a fast shutter speed, unless you’re going for an intentional blur. What’s great about this subject, is the fact that it freezes a nice moment, or a very active moment, to let viewers see the scene frozen in place. Look at a few of these photos.
As you can see, I love my dog, so I photograph her a lot. So first look at the birds, I was very lucky to capture that moment, and still get a good photo. But it’s really missing something. The birds are too far away to get a killer photo, but that’s not the case with my dog. My dog, Emily, is really playful at times, so I decided to photograph her while my brother threw her a stick to fetch. Those photos really captured a nice moment. But what makes the moment good? I like to think that, to get a good moment, you have to take the photo like if you were taking a photo of Yosemite or the Grand Canyon, so then you are really thinking, ” I love my dog a lot, so I want to capture this moment, and keep it forever in my mind.” So, my challenge for you is this: I want you to take a photo of a moving subject, edit it, and show it on the comments, I’ll judge all the photos that come in, and choose my favorites. Please do the challenge! Bye!
