Freezing Motion Anticipating the scene

Often we do not learn the different settings on our cameras until we are presented with a new photographic problem or inspiration.

This assignment is to inspire you to try and freeze some real motion. I’m not talking about casual walking or every day moves but extreme fun motion.

Think about what you can have someone do for you safely.

Then think about which setting on your camera will be best suited to really freeze the action to communicate there was some good motion going on.

You will need to shoot many practice shots to accomplish this. Remember to anticipate the movement!

Turn in 5 different shots of extreme motion frozen, properly labeled Lastname_first to the class drop box. They must be a different subject for each one. It must communicate a sense of motion or no credit will be given.

As always I will be looking for images that communicate well and are visually well exposed.
