Motion photography is about showing movement. Adding a slight blur of the action to your shot helps tell a story. This storytelling element makes the images a little less static and unexpected.
Another reason why showing movement stands out is because it sets the mood .Freeze motion shots can also be fun to experiment with at home, like photographing water or other moments that we miss at the blink of an eye.
You can use flash settings if you’re doing macro photography and remember to shoot with a purpose, and indicate movement frozen in time.
Splash photography is a technique that can add a certain degree of professionalism to your portfolio. Yes it requires some patience and practice,
But the most basic of splash shots can be achieved with little more than your camera, a speedlight and some diffusion material. The difference between this type of photograph and the previous is that you pan your camera while taking the shot at a low shutter speed.
This creates a different type of movement, where you do indicate a moving subject by blurring the background as probably seen from the perspective of your subject.
