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.

Today, in Craftsy’s First Friday Photography Gallery, we celebrate movement and applaud our talented members who have been able to so eloquently capture it on film. From people to animals to the natural landscape, these well-shot images are momentos of moments in time that are fully in motion.
What are your tips and tricks for capturing movement?
