Hello Members,

Happy New Year! It’s not only a new month or even a new decade, but more important you’ve got a new monthly challenge! For the entire month of January I’m inviting you to interpret the subject of movement as creatively as you like through your photography.

We normally record movement by freezing it, but by using a slower shutter speed we can introduce some creative blur. It’s surprising what effects you can create by controlling your cameras settings. It’s a good chance to experiment and learn from the results. Have a look through the link to the Digital Photography School’s article that I’ve posted in the Forum’s Monthly Theme header post for some inspiration.

Share your images with fellow members and discuss the technique you chose to apply. Good shooting!
