First Friday Photo Gallery: Movement

Posted by on Apr 4, 2014 in Photography |


From the moment we are born, we are motivated to move. Crawling, walking, jumping, running, dancing — movement is an integral part of our daily existence. It’s no wonder, then, that we are often captivated by images of movement and determined to capture movement in our photography. Timing is everything, and all the details — the angle of the shot, your camera’s settings, even depth of field — play into just how well you catch a snapshot of the action.
