The world is in motion all around us. Kids play, run, ride bikes. People walk, jog, drive cars, race cars, play sports. Animals fly, jump, eat, trot. Mechanical objects swing, swirl, spin. Even plants move in the wind. Assignment 20 is on Motion Photography. I will be looking for your best efforts in the art of motion photography.
Motion photography is the intentional blurring in a still image to show movement. While happy accidents happen to everyone, the best motion photographs are made intentionally by the photographer. For more motion photography examples, click the link below.
As in the other assignments, do not send me your photos. What I would like you to do is post them on your blog, flickr, Google+ or other photo sharing site, personal website or any place on the Internet where you can place a link to it here by making a comment to this blog entry. Then, we can all visit those sites and enjoy everyone’s Motion photos.
Please, have your photos posted on or before Midnight (your time zone), Wednesday, July 25, 2012. Might be a good time to start up a blog or join a photo community like flickr. As I have done for all the Assignments, I will put together a recap with my comments.
If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. I would appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this assignment so we can get lots of people to participate. Blog it, Tweet it, FaceBook it, Google+ it, email it and talk about it to your fellow photographers, bloggers, friends, strangers and family. Thank you!
