52 Weeks - Blur the Action

This weeks 52 Frames photo challenge was 'blur the action'. I'm excellent at taking 'blurry' photos, but usually, it's unintentional. This challenge was meant to be a photo with a blurred moving component.

Thank goodness I watched a bunch of Craftsy photography videos and learnt a little bit about shutter speed. Try Craftsy Unlimited, watch everything free! The lower the number the slower the shutter speed which is how you get that blurry effect.

Now to the setting. How amazing is this graffiti street art? This is painted on a wall in a carpark in our neighbourhood. It's only new and while it was being painted, we drove past it every day (to and from school). We wanted to get a picture with it, but never found the time or the right moment. 

When I saw the challenge theme, my first idea for the shot was a blurry figure running in front of the wall. As it's Sunday and the carpark was mostly empty, I took Amelia along and we made the most of it.

Technically, it's probably very flawed, but I don't care. I really like it. Spending some time with my little girl, trying to work out what angle we'd shoot from along with different poses to try and capture - what a lovely way to spend some time with my girl.

  2. It looks like it wasn't a challenge for you at all. What a great background and a great way to spend time with your daughter. Thanks for sharing the link to the challenge.
