Cap­ture move­ment cre­atively

Wide lens aper­tures aren’t the only way to pro­duce blur – the other big fac­tor is move­ment

01 STATIC SUB­JECTS

Not ev­ery­thing in the scene will move at the same speed, and some things won’t move at all – like these rocks and cliffs. As long as you use a tri­pod to keep the cam­era still, the static el­e­ments will stay sharp how­ever long the ex­po­sure.

02 MOV­ING WAVES

The waves are con­stantly wash­ing in and out dur­ing the ex­po­sure so they blur into a soft mist. They’re mov­ing quickly, though, so you can blur them with an ex­po­sure of around one sec­ond – though longer ex­po­sures give a smoother look.

03 MOV­ING CLOUDS

The move­ment of clouds is much slower, and they ap­pear sta­tion­ary dur­ing this onesec­ond ex­po­sure. To show move­ment in clouds you need to in­crease the ex­po­sure to a minute or more, turn­ing them into streaks of colour and tone.
