Creating Motion in Still Photography

Learn to create motion in still photography with Corey Rich.


AdoramaTV presents Getting the Shot with Corey Rich. Aperature, shutter speed, and lens focal length are some of the most basic - bust also the most powerful - tools we have as photographers to get creative and make interesting, artistic storytelling pictures.

In this Tech Tip, Corey shows a quick, easy tip that anyone can quickly master for using your shutter speed to get original and create a sense of speed/motion in an action-sports photo shoot. Working with Jake Dore, a world-class mountain biker, Corey shows why you might want to "stop" the motion, but instead let it blur across your frame. He also reveals the "sweet spot" shutter speed for creating this dynamic effect, and provides general tips for how to hold and move your camera while working with the subject to get that one perfect frame. The last and best step, as always, is to get out there and Get the Shot!
