Motion Blur Photography

December 24th 2008 11:27
If an object moves while its picture is being taken then streaking will occur. This is because cameras have a shutter speed which might range from a few seconds to a few microseconds. Faster shutter speeds reduce the chance of streaking but it's impossible to remove it altogether.
However, photographers can use this motion blur to their advantage and create stunning images using slow shutter speeds. Some excellent examples are below. These are from Smashing magazine and you can see many more fantastic motion blur images here.
