Well, I know that you need to have a fast shutter speed to freeze the motion objects. For example, if I have to freeze the moving fan, I will consciously set the shutter speed to 1/4000, that is the fastest shutter speed my camera offers. This instantly freezes the fast moving fan. But I am actually looking for something else.
I want to take a photograph where the moving object like a car running on the road is freezed while the background is blurred to give the sense of motion. Something like this image on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dagegil/4639458991/.
Can anyone help me?August 9, 2012 at 11:34 am #13297
What you actually want to capture is possibly called the panning. You need to set your camera to high shutter speed and pan it while taking the shot. But remember one thing, you will have to be quite judgmental about the shutter speed. It should neither be too slow as slow shutter speed will not be able to freeze the moving object, it should neither be too fast as you will not get time to effectively pan / move your along with the moving subject. So the best thing is to try to shoot by varying the shutter speed somewhere between 1/30 sec to 1/100 sec.
Hope this solves you problem.
