In motion and getting in track

‘I’ Notes:

Exercise four of my photography class was one of the best. We were taught on how to shoot moving objects, how to catch the action using our lenses and how to capture and make it appear like a frozen element in the middle of a moving background.

It was really challenging. We had three days to submit the result for this activity. Most of my shots weren’t so good. I had to spent two rolls (36 shots) of films just to have pretty good pictures- a not so perfect but could be accepted.

These are some of the pictures I took during the third day of trying really hard. Not that perfect but at least, I learned how to do it.

My professor’s tip: a lower aperture while carefully following the subject- this really worked!

The prelim trial: The fast cars

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away? Remembering Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Cars’

Prelim shots: moving subjects

You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way

prelim shots: moving cars

I remember we were driving, driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk

motorcycle in motion

This time, I tried my luck with some motorcycles passed by UP CAL area, here are two of the shots, not so good pictures

A more improved shot, but still, a not so good one (there will always be next time) 🙂
