Photography Challenge 88: Shutter Speed Montage

Our theme this fortnight at the Photoh groups was 'Shutter Speed'.

Shutter speed is the setting on your camera that determines how long the camera records the scene in front of your lens. A very fast shutter speed will freeze the action, whereas a slow shutter speed will blur the action, as well as lots of options and ways to get creative inbetween!

We were looking for entries that used a shutter speed that suited the chosen subject, and showed a bit of creativity and experimentation! We received just that, and the photos are all incredible. Thank you to all who took part!

The winner this fortnight is...Colleen Harris from Sydney! Congratulations Colleen! You have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!
Panning is without a doubt one of the hardest shutter speed skills to master, with even the top professionals openly admitting that it can often take quite a few takes in order to get that shot. Well Colleen, you sure have nailed the panning with your photograph! The scooter rider is in crisp focus, with all the details intact, whereas the background has great motion blur and bursts of colour. A fab take on the shutter speed challenge!

And in second place we have...Jason Plevras from Melbourne, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher!
Jason has used long exposure in his photograph, which blurs anything that is moving, but keeps anything still in focus. We love the fact that it was shot at dusk, so that you get bursts of light along the jetty, and a sense of movement from the people inside the frame. The person standing still looking into their phone is a great centre-point for the shot.

The theme for next fortnight is Composition Challenges.
Composition is all about finding a viewpoint or way to frame a photo that takes it from being a quick snapshot, to a professional-looking photograph.

Think about how you can use symmetry, rule of thirds and framing for this challenge. We've got a few blog posts that can help inspire you here:
