Shutter Speed in the Natural World

For this week’s assignment, you will attempt to use shutter speed in order to create an image that takes place in the natural world. By the natural world I mean have shrubbery, foliage, plants, animals, land masses, anything but that which is man made be in your picture. We want to go anti-technology on this one. You can use photoshop, but do not have anything in your picture that is man made.

It could be a night shot of a lake, or a pond, or a river, with a really long shutter speed. It could be a person’s face (clothing is made by man) lost in the woods, with a ghosted image of the face close up.

Here are the rules.

1. Have something in your image that represents the natural world, use land masses, rivers, streams, lakes, branches, leaves, flowers, etc.

2. People can be in your image, but do not feature earrings, or clothing. It does not mean that you shoot your subject naked, don’t go there! But you can zoom in on a hand, or a wrist, a fingernail, eyebrow, etc.

3. The picture must also use some degree of shutter speed trickery. A really long exposure, a long shutter speed. Capturing fast motion using a really fast shutter speed. The face of a cow at a rodeo, frozen in time, that kind of thing.

4. Just like any other picture, the picture must be one that you yourself have taken.

5. Assignment will be due on next wednesday, 2/18.

6. If you shoot at school, you must use RAW. Convert it to Jpeg before you enter it into the photo challenge.

You have a long weekend coming up. shoot tons of pictures, then choose the best one from the lot. Such is the way with the best pictures. Don’t just take one picture of something, change up the aperture or shutter speed, under of over expose it. You will come up with your best work this way.
