Motion Blur Photography - Christchurch Cathedral square - 6:00pm - 3
Motion is captured in photos by drawing attention to the speed at which a subject or object is moving, in relation to the other things around it. A streaky look is created when a subject is moving, but other things in the same frame are still. We’ll be learning the settings to use, as well as choosing some interesting subjects to test these skills out on.
