Shutter Speed Exercises – Part 1

After the depth-of-field homework, we worked on experimenting with shutter speed. This was something I rarely did intentionally, so it was exciting to explore new or rarely used techniques. I soon found out that it was both fun and frustrating, in pretty much equal measures, but I agree with our teacher that the pictures do have more of an energy to them than the majority of ‘frozen moments’.

During class, we went out to Oxford Street to ‘play with traffic’ and pan passing vehicles. It took a lot of shots just to get something that worked well, like this cyclist.
