Motion: Freeze and Blur

I’ll be honest, I had no idea what kind of images I wanted to do for motion photography. These were what I came up with.

The first image is of a tree by the river next to Jack In The Box. I wanted to get a picture of the river, but it was snowing too hard, so I got a picture of the snow instead. I took it to Photoshop and edited the brightness/contrast a little and played with the levels tool for the finished product.

For this one, I decided I’d have my roommate throw one of my scarves off the balcony of my apartment. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but it turned out alright. I also edited the contrast, vibrance and levels on this image.

For this image, I spun a butterfly pendant on a chain and tried to capture it in motion. Part of it is blurry, but I’m not sure you can tell it’s spinning. I edited the vibrance, saturation, contrast, and levels in Photoshop.

I found inspiration for this image on Google images. I steadied the camera on my windowsill and held the shutter button halfway down so it would focus on the two stationary dice and then dropped one and tried to catch it mid-bounce. I edited the vibrance, saturation, contrast, and levels in this image.
