Another one of those weeks when the challenge title can mean so much, depending on how you interpret it. Yes, you can always go with the guidelines laid down in the challenge but that’s all too easy sometimes. Besides, you know me, I don’t always follow the challenge guidelines. But this week, I’m going to be good, so here goes.
The donkeys in this photograph were moving so fast that they’ve ended up blurred. Too fast for my camera to catch them. Cars are whizzing by but those donkeys are really moving.
It’s no good saying “hold it” to a moment in real life. – Lord Snowdon – on why you should shoot first and worry about the focusing on the second picture
So I’ll let you into a little secret. The donkeys were just walking along as normal. The cars are stuck in traffic and not moving, therefore I could photograph the cars without them looking blurred. Trick Photography…..
..If you get an opportunity in photography you have to grab it – they don’t come along that often. When you get the chance of a great picture, you have to identify that quickly and make the most of the situation. Whatever age you are you can do that. Even with luck, you will still have to press the shutter at the right time. You need good reflexes and you need to be fit. – John Giles
And I blew it in the next photograph. You can’t shoot in a dark area of the underground, whilst you are moving and so are the musicians. Worse still I had a really slow shutter speed. Shame really, it could have been an interesting photograph
Finally another one of those photographs, slower shutter speed and the point of focus is to the back of the gallery. Once again I’m lucky because the lady in the foreground moved just as I pressed the shutter.
Well, that’s it for this week. I hope you enjoyed the photographs and as usual here’s what other bloggers are saying about this weeks challenge.
