Objectives Explore the use of photography to capture motion. Analyze and interpret works by past and contemporary motion photographers. Apply proper camera functions for the desired effect. At the end of the project, you will submit a contact sheet with 9 photos, and 4 final – Stop, Blur, Panning, & Light Writing.
Questions to Consider How do photographers manipulate exposure to reveal to the viewer the passage of time? What ideas/emotions can I convey in my images through motion?
Stop Action Photography Subject in Motion is in Perfect Crisp Focus, background is still, or in focus as well
Where do we see stop action (frozen motion) photographs?

Objectives Collaborate with a partner or group to create stop action photographs. Each person in the group is responsible for taking his/her own photographs. Choose 2 of the stop action photos you take today for your contact sheet, and 1 of these will be selected as your final image. You will: *Experiment with camera functions in order to achieve a high quality image *Consider the effect of motion in an image *Compose dynamic images *Express an idea or emotion Consider: What stories can I tell through the use of motion? What camera settings will I use to achieve the sharpest image? What will be the viewer’s experience when looking at my image?
Blur Action Motion blur is the apparent streaking of rapidly moving objects in a still image or a sequence of images, subject in motion is blurry, background (or other still/non moving objects) is still and in focusstill image
Objectives You will: *Apply proper camera settings for the desired outcome *Experiment with motion and movement *Consider color, composition, and light You create photographs using the Blur Action technique. Choose 2 of your images for the contact sheet, and 1 for your final image. Consider: What is my shutter speed? How will light affect my image? How can I vary my subject matter, composition, and technique?
Panning In photography, panning refers to the horizontal movement or rotation of a still camera, or the scanning of a subject horizontally, subject in motion is in focus and background is blurrystillcamera
What should I avoid? -Shutter speed is too fast (subject looks static) -Blocking the subject - Missing the action (pressing the shutter too late)
Objectives You will: *Consider the effect of panning in an image *Experiment with various subjects, speeds, and movements *Apply your knowledge of camera functions to achieve high quality images Take a series of photographs using the panning technique. Select 2 of your panning photos for your contact sheet, and 1 for your final image. Consider: What do I want to express in my images? What is my shutter speed? What is my subject, and how fast is it moving? When do I need to press the shutter to capture motion?
Objectives You will: *Create dynamic images using light and motion *Experiment with different movements and light sources *Apply proper camera settings for the desired effect Choose 3 light writing photographs for your contact sheet, and 1 photograph for your final. Consider: What is my shutter speed? How will my movements affect the outcome of the image? How will color affect my image?
