Capturing the movement in the image is something that many photographers only photograph sports or other fast-moving subjects. Almost every type of photography can benefit from the emphasis of movement in a shot even when the movement is very small, slow or subtle. The reason for movement blur is simply the amount of time that the shutter of a camera is open is long enough to allow your cameras image sensor to see the movement of your subject. The number one tip in capturing movement in an image is to select a longer shutter speed. The other factor that comes into play in determining shutter speed is how much light there is in the scene you are photographing.
There are two ways to get a feeling of movement in your images have your subject move or have your camera move. In this type of shot you need to do everything that you can to keep your camera perfectly still or in addition to blur from the subject you’ll find that the whole frame looks like moving as a result of using a longer shutter speed. One of the most important settings in photographing an image which emphasizes movement is the shutter speed (as outlined above). This means either switching your camera into full mode or shutter priority mode. Shutter priority mode is a mode that allows you to set your shutter speed and where the camera chooses other settings (like aperture) to ensure the shot is well exposed. If you shoot in shutter priority mode the camera will do this automatically for you-but if you’re in manual mode you’ll need to decrease your aperture in a proportional amount to the amount that you lengthen the shutter speed.
