Thread: SAL Photography Challenge #11 - Motion

  1. #1

    SAL Photography Challenge #11 - Motion

    It's time for a new challenge and I thought Motion would be a great way to get us out and about using slower shutter speeds and using other creative tricks like panning perhaps

    I was thinking about some flowing water with a slow shutter, car taillights, kids running around, and anything else that captures some kind of Motion!

    I will add more sample photos and more info as far as challenge rules when I get a few more minutes. Right now I'm pressed for time getting ready for work...

    Challenge Rules:

    - Take photos of stuff that is in motion!
    - Using a tri-pod is very helpful for shots like this if applicable
    - Panning can be done without a tri-pod, but a tri-pod can also help depending...
    - Slower shutter speeds can really help create the motion effects with very little effort
    - Capturing motion with a fast shutter speed can also be done if the subject is moving of course...

    "Motion" - Sample Photos

    I took these a while back, but illustrate a examples of capturing motion:











    All you need is a swing for this one:

    Thanks,

    Bridging between the last and this challenge, a couple of recent shots...

    First one caught at a street crossing with an A6000 and Sony/Zeiss 16-70mm.

    The second one is more of a stabilization test I did. Not perfectly sharp (hand shaking) but then again that was one full second hand-held using the same camera/lens combo as the previous image. Not winning any contest here but not too unhappy either about the possibilities.

    Nice shots guys!
    Purpose of the challenge is to go out and take shots, not to dig in your folders and find something that fits.

    Agreed and will try to get new stuff posted... I had taken my previous shots a few weeks ago with the intent of publishing in the previous challenge but since they fit the new theme... why not? Anyway, should have a bit more time to actively do new photography...

    Regards.

    Tried some after dark light trails downtown 2 days ago, but was using old non-stabilized lens - hand held. Wrong kind of motion.
    This from this month. I'll keep trying.

    Great idea and intro set, Jay. I thought I'd get out for a few shots today and grabbed these as I was hunting a "roadside" cache. This is good exercise for me -- a nice 2km stroll, and not my usual targeting mode. A good challenge, especially in bright conditions. Tricksy. So I stopped down...

    Really nice job Brian and Gramps! Way to give it a go and try something new

    Playing around in the lab with shutter speed. I actually went with a 6 second exposure with the Sony RX10 Mark II using shutter priority mode and with Auto ND filter on, ISO 100. I went backwards first a little, then forwards which created this ghosting/ overlay/ motion blur effect...

    I then processed the raw file using Capture One 8

    Really nice Lucille. Beautiful car and great motion composition. Like the perspective used.

    I'll post my near misses from today. Stood on a couple of corners downtown, trying some panning with a 55mm. Thought the focal length would act as multiplier for the motion effect, but next time, going to try a 30mm focal length. Think the first post would have been nice shot of the maserati, had there not been a car going the opposite direction in front of me right at "click".

    This one the top lights are the street lights
    The mass near the middle bottom are the traffic lights.
    The orange light on the left is yet another street light but in that colour for some reason.
    All the others are shop lights

    Inspired by all the great photos here I went for another go at shooting in the car with a slower shutter speed. I found 1 second to work pretty well for creating the warp drive effect for lack of a better word I took this with the Sony RX10 Mark II on the way to dinner yesterday while Michele was driving.

    Nice captures Gramps and I hope the plumbing worked out ok My brother is a plumber...

    Here are two I captured a few days ago in the early evening hours which made for some cool lighting I thought. What I had in front of me was a road with only about 4 feet of space to myself and then a colorful gas station across the street. The distance to subject was very close and was moving at about 30mph. So, I had to pan extremely fast in the hopes to capture something. I knew the gas station would look awesome when streaked due to the colors, but getting the car in focus was going to be next to impossible based on the distance I had to work with and the speed of the cars. In the end, this is what I got and I thought the result was pretty cool overall. The rims and color streaks I thought made an intersting pattern at the very least.

    Being very limited for time and trying to get other review work done has left me pretty dry for good motion shots. Yesterday I decided to try a few more "Warp Drive" style shots while driving in the car. I figured with some practice I could probably get something pretty decent. Well, I did manage to get some interesting frames at least...

    Clearly my window is filthy and all of these fun snapshots were taken with the Sony RX10 Mark II with a 1 second exposure.













    Thanks for looking and I will try to get something much better if I can find the time and subject matter

    Layla was very intrigued when I asked her if she wanted to try and get a cool shot for the "Motion Challenge". I set my Nex-6 w/ 16mm pancake to shutter priority mode and ~2 seconds. I told Layla to have some fun and was super curious what she would come up with. I showed here quickly the shuttter button and how the exposure was taking two seconds. She picked it up in about 2 seconds and ran away from me with the camera!

    I was particularly impressed with these frames, but she got several more that were contenders for sharing

    First the Tree's...



    Then an abstract photo which I just can't stop looking at. It appears like some kind of harmony was achieved here that my brain loves. I can't really put my finger on what it is though? Anybody? Perhaps it's just me



    A few more I really liked:







    Thanks for looking and Layla could not believe I was going to post these on the "website".. The smile on her face was priceless I must tell you guys!!

    Jay posting Layla's photos...
