Weekly Photo Challenge – Movement

This weeks photo challenge is to express movement.

Movement is something I want to experiment with a lot more in the coming months but here are a few ideas that I had.

The feature image captures the clouds and movement of the sea using a 10 stop neutral density  filter to allow a long exposure time.

The first shot shows the sea breaking against the rocks whilst seagulls swoop around.  A fast shutter speed was used to capture the splashes.

Beach 03 March-4

The second shot shows my dogs splashing around in the sea, again a reasonably fast shutter speed was needed to capture the splashes.

The final shot is of post-punk rock band Slaves.  This was a very difficult shot as low light, no flash and the need for a very fast camera speed to freeze movement and coping with the smoke to grab good focus is a challenge for any photographer and his to her equipment.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
