When you take a picture, you “froze” the scene. Imagine a street crowed of people. If you choose a high time exposure, you can see all the face, details, etc. It depends that you want to express its perfect.
But, if you want to show action, activity or movement, to freeze a scene it’s not the solution for this.
When I took this photo I was in a festival.
These trains let children and adults travel over it. People enjoy doing this, it’s funny, faster , I think that you understand that I’m talking.
I decided that I want to create photography with a lot of action. I was standing front of one of this train, that was stopped. I knew that the other train past very quickly. I believe that contrast between something static and something on movement transmit the idea of dynamism.
When you want take photos like this, you must use long exposure techniques, normally no more than ½ seconds are necessary, for this you must pay attention at:
- Be careful with overexposure some parts of the photography, if you are on a sunny day, use a low ISO, small aperture or if it’s required some ND filter.
- If you use a long exposure, the photos can be unfocused. To avoid this, you can use a tripod, but sometimes it’s not possible. My advice it’s be quite when you push the button, try not move or if you can lean on column, wall, etc.
- Remember use vibration reducer if your camera or lens had.
