    Photo Assignment 05/04/08

    The snow has melted; the sun is out. Remove those bike covers and let's get moving. Hold on, hot rod! Before you get in motion, we humbly remind you of these simple rules:

    • Photos must be shot between Fri. 04/25/08 and Sun. 05/04/08--10 days.
    • You must provide the EXIF information if asked (we'll help you, if you'd like to know how to get it).
    • No photoshop alteration (we're looking to improve your skills with your camera, not software).
    • Your photograph must adhere to the theme, which will be described below.
    • Post only one photo per post, so that commentary can be easily provided for that photo. You may post more than one photo, but try to keep it to a handful.
    • Title your photo so it can be referred to later.
    • Post two or three of your best photos in this thread. Please post series, experiments, and photos for comment and criticism in the PHOTO COMMENTARY thread.
    • And, the most important rule: have fun! We're looking to spread the joy that many of us derive from taking pictures, particularly ones that tell a story of some kind.


    This week's theme: "Motion"

    This assignment invites you to manipulate your camera's controls to record something in motion; however, don't simply record motion, create an image that reveals motion.

    This can be accomplished by experimenting with faster or slower shutter speeds. Almost all cameras give you the option of doing this. If you can't figure out how to on your camera, PM me. Some possible scenarios include putting your camera on a tripod with a slow shutter speed, shooting at night, or panning your camera with a fast-moving subject. Or you can come up with your own.

    While this assignment invites images of motorcycles zooming by or kids swinging on the swingset, don't overlook the possibility of shooting a mechanism or some other moving detail.

    Here are a few resources for photographing motion:



    Remember Ansel Adam's admonition, "You don't take a photograph, you make it."

    Although your primary focus (pun intended) is motion, don't forget the principles we've been working on:

    • Rule of thirds
    • Think foregrounds
    • Shooting during the "golden hours"
    • Look for a focal point
    • Consider a high or lower vantage point
    • Seek diagonal lines
    • Frame your subject


    NOTE: Please use the COMMENTARY THREAD to post multiple efforts and to discuss techniques, ask questions, make comments, etc. Please reserve this thread no more than three of your final efforts, the photos you're really proud of and want feedback on. Thanks!

    Now get out there and record "motion"!
