This week's challenge is out a bit late and for that I apologize. Between having back-to-back shoots scheduled this week and a few technical difficulties (I had to shoot, edit and upload the new challenge video twice), it's been a fantastically fun week.
No more stalling. Here it is.
Last week we were challenging ourselves to isolate the subject in frame with many techniques, but with one in particular: shallow depth-of-field. This is achieved by choosing the right aperture.
This week we will be focusing on how changing the shutter speed affects your image. A fast shutter speed (eg. 1/1000 of a second) can freeze a subject in motion with no blur while a slow shutter speed (eg. 1/15 of a second) keeps the camera's shutter open longer allowing more action to be captured and thus you get motion blur.
With aperture and shutter now covered we are two steps closer to covering what's called the "exposure triangle" and understanding how to shoot in full manual mode.
So get out there and get shooting. I'm looking forward to trying some motion blur shots out that i have in mind. Also can't wait to see what everybody submits.
As always, submissions need to be in by Noon on Sunday to be included in the video critiques.
Here are some helpful links for some ideas to get you started:
