Anybody up for another once a week challenge, or give Peter a break on running the, Your Best Photo Of The Week Challenge?

 

We could run them side by side if you like.  The Motion In march Challenge would be either freezing motion with a blurred back ground, or blurring motion with a still background, your choice every week beginning March, 6 and ending March 27.

 

What say you?

I like it...I don't shoot very often any longer, too many other things getting in the way or me just being lazy, but I will try to get something in once or twice...

It's an interesting idea. I can't guarantee I'll come up with anything, but it's all part of the learning process for me.

I'll get an ND filter on order perhaps!

Sounds like an interesting idea. Let’s run them in parallel, starting the Your best… challenge every week is hardly a burden.

I've just noticed - that's your 1000th post - perhaps an honorary letter from your president?

I wouldn't even want to discuss him publicly, Pete.

 

Oh, I don't think you need a filter, unless you just want to buy one.  Shutter speed alone can work for you in many cases, shutter speed and depth of field can do some more creative things with motion.   Something to play with, a bicycle going past, a fast shutter speed will freeze everything from a still camera, pan the bicycle with a slower shutter speed and you'll blur the back ground.  A stationary camera using a slow shutter speed will blur the bicycle and freeze the background, or you could shoot from something moving.

 

You're a good photographer. Pete and given some time to play around with this exercise you'll have us all beat!
