our project 52 week 5: Motion and Shutter Speed

our project 52 week 5 motion


Taken with Canon 6D and Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Lens

Settings( for all 3 photos) Aperture f/11 Shutter Speed: 1/1000 ISO: 6400

Taking jump shots are fun. I wont tell you the amount of times I jumped to get these shots for this post. Just be assured that CDub was giving me the crazy side eye for being outside in the cold jumping around LOL.

Tip of the week: To capture motion, like I did here, I knew I would need a high shutter speed. High Shutter speeds help you to freeze motion. Remember: The higher the number, the faster the shutter will open and close and the more focus you will have. On the opposite end, the lower the number, the slower the shutter will open and close and the more blur you will have.

Also, my ISO is quite high here only because since it was such a cloudy/overcast day, I needed more light to keep my shutter speed up AND my aperture up.

I can’t wait to see your motion photos this week! Everyone is so creative!

    I love your jumping shots. Those are always the best! Thanks for the tips. Now if I can just figure out what I’m supposed to do to actually set the speed and aperture on my camera.

    These are great tips. Question – I realize more bloggers choose Canon over Nikon. Do you know why that is?

    Your jumping shots look fun. Jumping shots look like they would be fun for a family portrait too.
