Last night, while we were on the road, I decided to take out my 35mm digital camera and snap a few motion pictures. I played around with different effects, like moving the camera around during exposure. I included below some of my favorite shots plus the exposure settings.
Motion photography, especially at night, is a lot of trial and error with shutter speeds. Fortunately, with digital photography, camera settings can be adjusted rather easily after viewing photographed effects. Just make sure that your camera is set on manual mode or shutter speed priority. Normally camera shake occurs at one thirtieth of a second (1/30) or longer. Other variables that impact blur effect includes subject's movement, photographer's movement, and panning of camera. In the last two photos shown above, for example, I was panning (following the subject with my camera) while I was in a moving car.
