ASSIGNMENT: Stop, Pan & Blur

Due on the server by 5 p.m. on Friday, November 9, are three photos: one stop, one pan and one blur.

For the stop, keep the phrase, “freezing a body in motion” in mind as you select your subject. You will need to shoot this in bright light as you will need a very high shutter speed. Be sure that your subject is moving at a high rate of speed.

For the pan, you will need a lower level of light to compensate for the longer shutter speed you will need. Remember that the key here is to move the camera in unison with your subject, keeping them relatively sharp while the background streaks or blurs.

For the blur, your camera will remain still (bracing it is okay if you need to). You are looking to keep some stationary objects sharp while a primary subject moves through the frame.

You can have three different subjects here, or use the same one in two or more of these. Full captions and remember that we tell stories about people, not things. Don’t shoot cars or buses for this, find people who move as part of their daily lives and share that with us.
