ARTS 2001C Week 4 Demonstrate Your Stride

Every morning, I start my day with a four-mile run at a local park in California. This park is not only a runner’s haven, but it also serves as a training ground for local horse owners. On Monday morning, I had the privilege of capturing Tilly and her owner on their routine morning walk. Each horse I encounter has a unique story, proving that animals have different personalities and characteristics, just like humans.

This week, our focus was on capturing motion in photographs. To achieve this, I used a high ISO setting and a fast shutter speed, and instead of relying on my phone, I borrowed my sister’s professional Canon-EOS Rebel T6i DSLR Camera. By setting the camera to shutter priority mode, I was able to choose the shutter speed and allow the camera to automatically select the aperture setting for optimal exposure. Capturing an image is like holding one’s breath, where all senses converge in the face of a fleeting moment. It is at that moment that capturing an image becomes a physical and intellectual joy (Edge, 2008).

For this assignment, I used continuous shooting mode to capture multiple exposures in rapid succession. To quickly focus on moving objects, like Tilly, I used continuous focusing. Timing was critical to ensure that I captured the right moment. Whether it’s a person walking through a scene or clouds gathering over a mountain, everything must move across the frame (Freeman, 2013). I also used panning to get a relatively sharp subject and blur the background. Additionally, I added motion by zooming the lens during the exposure.

To give a sense of visual flow, I used repeating elements to establish rhythm and momentum to guide the viewer’s eye through my photographic composition. Gradations of color, size, light, and shape are especially powerful in coaxing the eye through a photograph. Motion blur itself often appears as a gradation of tone, color, and transparency in the frame. When the viewer’s eye is naturally and predictably encouraged to move, from one area of the frame to another, visual flow is achieved. ARTS 2001C Week 4 Demonstrate Your Stride
