Shutter Speed — 10 Fantastic Photographs On Motion Effects

Motion and movement always add a dimension of activity to our photographs. That is where the shutter speed of our camera can help us get some amazing photographs conveying motion. Shutter speed is the other most used semi auto mode; just next to aperture priority mode. While playing around with the lens opening allows you to beautifully blur the background and compliment the subject with dreamy hazy look, shutter speed has its own implications. If you’ve had a chance to photograph the kids, sports or any other spontaneous activity, you know what I am speaking of — freezing the motion. In addition to this, you can also employ this creative camera mode for photographing beautiful motion effects, panning, light painting and the likes. Here are 10 awesome examples of photographs that describe how motion, movement and panning contribute to our photographic expression.
