After missing the July photo challenge – I just didn’t seem to get any inspiration for “Communication” I was determined to produce something for August. In August we made our annual trip to Newfoundland to visit my in-laws and it’s usually the most photos I take in a year. This year we visited for two weeks and I took 1200 photos. Keeping the theme of movement in mind I have a few photos to share.
I found that my photos of movement naturally resolved into a few categories.
The first photo is of a boat in Petty Harbour. It’s the “ironic” movement photo.
I spent a lot of time trying to get the perfect motion blur with water photo, but without a tri-pod it was a bit difficult. This was the only one that turned out worth sharing.
My kids, especially the big one, are in constant motion. In fact, it’s hard to get him to stop moving long enough to take a photo. So many photos of movement as we hiked and explored around Newfoundland.
And of course, here’s the little one, who’s desperate to move, but so far all he’s mastered is backwards.
And here’s a final one of much of the family heading across a river.
Then I tired for the motion blur photos at night. The first two are from my Family Reunion at the beginning of August and the second two from out camping trip with a few other families at the end of August. Again, a tripod would have helped.
Finally, the trouble with capturing “Movement” using a still camera is that, well, it’s a still shot. This short video has a few series of photos put together that allows the movement to really stand out.
(about the Lego… I had visions of making a little movie for the big boy… but I’m not sure I’ll actually get it together. Stop motion is a lot of work! However, I did have fun playing around a little bit. Maybe someday I’ll actually do a project like that!
