Take a picture of something in action, you can freeze the action, or purposely blur it to show movement.
I am not sure if I did this right I kept messing with the shutter speed while my son was running around being a ninja, but I never really got a blur effect from the motion? I think I need some more practice.
Here were the tips from Beth and Lolli’s blog:
* The longer the shutter stays open, the more light that comes into the camera, and the more likely you will be to get blurred motion.
* The shorter the shutter stays open, the less light that comes into the camera, and the more likely you will be to freeze the action in your shot.
* Use a fast shutter speed to stop action, or for fast-moving subjects.
* Use a slow shutter speed to let in more light (in lower light situations), for stationary subjects, or to show motion.
I took these photos with my Sony Cybershot DSC-H20
