Images explained - Little stories about making decisions


If you want to create movement you need to let go of the safe settings. The main setting to control here is shutter speed. With a slow shutter speed everything that moves becomes blurry. To stabilise your camera a tripod is handy.

For this image I had no tripod and I had only one chance. With a large dose of luck I got this result. The whole photo moves, except for the face.

And no, this is not a product of post processing. It was all done in-camera.

For more motion photography, I have an other website called Blur Of The Moment.

Photography is not just a matter of aiming your camera and pressing the button. For collecting memories this is perfectly alright. But if you want to decide what exactly ends up in your photo and how, you have to spend some more time and make decisions.

What is it what you want? Are there any distractions or irrelevant parts you definitely don’t want in your image? Do you want to be creative by changing your aperture or shutter speed? Or even move the camera (or just the lens) while pressing the shutter, to add a certain effect? What is the best moment to press the button?

This is a series of images where I explain what it is what I wanted and how I executed my plans.

These are things I talk about on my photography tours. If this appeal to you, check out the tours or go straight to to make your booking.
