Round Robin Challenge: In Motion

Hi, Robins! Once again I'm going to combine two people's topics, not because I want to use up the suggestion pool extra fast, but to give both people credit for their similar ideas. For Saturday, October 3rd, the topic is

In Motion
NOW CLOSED!


Bats leave a bridge over the Rillito at sunset, Tucson, AZ.

Vicki of the blog Maraca calls her version of the topic "Greased Lightning," and explains it this way:

One thing I'd like to learn to do is panning, or following a moving object with the camera so that it stays in focus while the background blurs, giving a sense of motion. I tried it while my son flew his model airplane this fall, without much success. This shot might not have been bad if I had had more of the ground in the frame. Let's call this challenge "Greased Lightning!"

Terri of the blog Ways I See the World calls her version Movement Shots - "birds, children, insects."

So let's do this! Let's capture objects in motion, whether it means moving the camera to keep up, or capturing the blur of movement against a static background.

You know how this works, right?
  • Do NOT post before the Challenge Date, Saturday, October 3rd!
  • DO RSVP in the comments below, thus:
I'm moved to play along with this topic!

I have posted. I hope I am doing this the right way. For some reason I am very confused about the dates. My name should be the correct link to my in motion post.

I forgot to let you know I'd posted on Saturday! Sorry about that.
