This week’s photography assignment was ‘Movement’. I set this to test our students’ use of shutter speeds. In the course, we look at light painting photography using long exposures and freezing the action with faster shutter speeds. This task was to put that knowledge to the to the test and boy did they do that!
From the gallery of entries, the people’s vote was joint between two people. The first winner was Brendan Rooney with this great picture of a waterfall with a duck in front of it. Really difficult shot to get as you want the duck still but the waterfall blurred. The only way to get this is to have a longer exposure and hope the duck stays still for long enough so it doesn’t blur as well! Luckily in this shot it happened, well done Brendon.
The next people’s vote winner is Amy McBride with this picture of someone jumping off a step. In contrast to the other shot this one has been taken with a faster shutter speed to freeze the movement. Well done Amy.
My vote this week goes to Lauren Phipps for this long exposure shot of cars on the A13 going into London. I like this shot because of it’s composition. The car lights curve through the frame and off into the distance really well. Well done Lauren 😊
