About this activity
How can movement be captured in photography? Or, on the other hand, how can you freeze the action of a scene? Managing the exposure time – or the shutter speed – of the camera is the answer to these two questions and is, just like the depth of field, a key parameter in photography.
The first contact with photography came at a very early age, in 1984, when his dad taught him how to look through the view glass of a Rolleiflex. It wasn’t until Ricardo’s first son was born, that he made the decision of getting a new DSLR camera to record the family memories. After that photography became a serious hobby and it didn’t take long until he decided to explore film photography and the analog world.
This parameter allows the light to hit the digital sensor for a defined amount of time, which will freeze or blur a movement.
In this case, you will have once again a wide array of creative possibilities: blur or freeze the action, get a filé (a moving subject is frozen in a blurry surrounding).
This workshop will teach you how to:
- Use the “S” and “Tv” shooting modes
- Make filés of moving subjects
- Freeze the movement of a subject
- Use blur to suggest movement and bring dynamism to your pictures
