    Assignment 15: Motion Blur -- Congratulations Sean Setters



    I think freelanceshots, our winner from Assignment 14, has said it best, so here are his words:





    I was thinking of a contest where the submitted images would need to have some part of the image with motion blur and another part of the image in sharp focus. The way for people to do this is to use a slower shutter speed fast enough to capture the subject but blur other objects moving faster. Another example is using a tripod with really low shutter speeds but capture unmovable objects as still images. Another technique is to pan with an object and blur everything else not moving with the subject. Another example could be painting with light where you use a slow shutter and a flash on the second curtain and move a light source around to create text or shapes or even more.


    Here is an example from my Flickr:

    The Finalists





    Sorry about this! Apparently lists of people were sent to me, and my email never delivered. Here are the finalists, poll is below

    the child in the swing is really good because the background is so silky smooth and the child is in pretty good focus. Just overall very pleasing. Hopefully not heavily enhanced with the aid of the computer

    Because its an original subject and artfully done

    Sean Setters


    Because it took effort above and beyond to get this shot and I like his color choice in WB to balance the color of the car and the background light plus the lighting setup in the car.








    Alex Niedra


    Because its just a cool, original image with unique shapes made by the waves. White balance was an interesting choice that added to the image presentation.

    Andy Stringer


    Because of the precision to capture a wild tiger with a fast enough shutter to capture the head but still blur the body to show movement.

    a completely still image would be boring. Could use some contrast and saturation which would make it more eye popping.

    Sorry about that! It works now. It only took me 75 tries...one would think that a CS degree would mean I know computers...sigh.

    Awesome photo, freelanceshots!! Would you mind posting your EXIF data for that example. Usually in flickr that is available but not on this one.


    Thanks!

    Any fair makes for some interesting photos because of all the lights and action. Can't find the original photo to get the exif data. I believe it was shot with a 30D and maybe the 17-55 IS lens with a tripod. Shutter would have been slow like 1 sec and the f-stop maybe around f/8 with a low ISO.

    BTW-I've posted this before. Please let me know if that is a problem and I'll remove it. Thanks.
