You might wish to photograph a dog sprinting, a train barreling down the tracks, or trees waving in the wind, for example. Each of these images can come to life in your photographs if you know how to correctly express motion. Today, I’ll show you how to capture motion in your photography by using varied shutter speeds and panning. I’ll also go through a potential problem you might have when photographing moving subjects, as well as how to fix it.

Journey : In the never-ending race of men
A journey to find happiness: Even a voyage to hell can be enjoyable if you have a companion.

Photographs that capture motion are likely to captivate new photographers. There are a few various approaches to taking these images, each with a somewhat different purpose. You know, there are instances when it’s necessary to obscure certain components of an image while focusing sharply on a few foreground topics. You might want to freeze or distort everything at other times. The path you choose is determined on your photographic goal.

Sun Spinning : When light meets water droplets, it operates similarly to how the sun does.
Celestial body : It resembles the planet Saturn.

Many photographers capture motion just to show that something is moving. There are, however, additional reasons to do so. Mood can be communicated through movement. Trees rustling in the breeze convey tranquilly, whereas swarms of people on a crowded city block represent frantic activity.

Dancing water : As the glass moves, the water droplets dance.
Carassius auratus : The fish’s soul emerges from the garbage.

You can also utilise motion to remove aspects from a scene that may cause the viewer to become distracted. For example, you might want to picture someone standing on a corner of a sidewalk as automobiles pass by. You can eliminate potential distractions and focus the viewer’s attention by blurring everything except your key topic (i.e., the man on the corner).
