3 types of motion in photography to help guide you

Freeze-frame is where you simply freeze the frame while the subject is in motion, often suspended in the air. The aim is to capture the motion while keeping the image mostly clear.

Motion blur is the most common type of motion photography where the object that is in action is blurred out whereas the objects not in motion are shown in detail.


It can intentionally be created by either keeping the background in motion and subject stable or vice versa. The purpose is to create an interesting visual effect in the image.

In visual flow (in camera motion), the only factors controlled are the lighting, camera stability, and shutter speed. Nothing is done to the scene. The motion of the subject and background are shot as they are without any interference.

May Challenge: 



May 22nd 7:00pm-9:00pm on Zoom

Motion photography is all about capturing movement using your camera. You can freeze fast action or show the blur of motion, like a speeding car or a dancer mid-twirl. Experiment with your camera settings and timing to create exciting images that bring movement to life!
