In Motion Photography Daily Theme

On Google+, I curate or host a Daily Photo Theme each week called #InMotionThursday were I invite people to share their photos using techniques which show motion in a still photograph.

Photographers use various techniques like these to do so:

  • Panning
  • Blurs
  • Zooming
  • Long Exposure Streaks
  • ICM (Intentional Camera Movement)

Since I post publicly, everyone on Google+ is invited to participate and each week people from all over the world post fantastic motion photos.  It is a fun way to learn about motion photography, meet new and creative photographers and giving back to the G+ community.

Photo themes are well known on Blogs and Flickr but have been taken to a whole new level on Google+ where there are hundreds of themes each week. Think of a photography subject and there is probably a theme for it. If you are on Google+, look me up here, Scott on G+, and, for those who are not, hope to see you there!

    Hey, now I get it! On the last photo of my photo hunt, I lamented that I forgot to push up the shutter speed to stop the action, but now I realize I was “showing action with blur” – yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket! 😉
