About this activity

How to capture movement in photography? How to freeze a fast action?

The management of the exposure time - or shutter speed - of the camera is what will help answer these two questions, and is a key parameter in photography, just like depth of field.
This parameter allows the light to enter the camera for a shorter or longer period of time, which has the effect of causing blur or, alternatively, freezing movement.

Here again, the creative possibilities are vast: blurring or freezing a movement or even obtaining a moving subject, frozen, with a blurred background).

This course will teach you how to :
- UsetheSorTvmode
- Creating threads of moving subjects
- Freezing a moving subject
- Use blurriness to capture movement and make your photos more dynamic.

During this course, which is held by videoconference, small practical exercises are of course planned. In​ this respect, please make sure that you have your device loaded and equipped with an empty image memory card.

This course lasts between 1h30 and 2h and includes a theoretical explanation and exercises (within the limits of space of the house/apartment).

Possibility to have the class at 10am, 2pm or 6pm. Please message me when you have booked to confirm the timing.

This beginner's course is part of a series of 4 introductory courses for beginners (available by videoconference and face-to-face, in different durations). These courses are offered separately: courses 1, 2, 3 & 4.
