Photography, Michigan in Motion, July and August

On this warm evening, I’m catching up on some images from the past summer. Inspired by Stacey’s work with her photography classes at Moline High School, I’m presenting a set with a theme—motion. I’ve included the exposure information—shutter speed, aperture, ISO speed, and focal length. I’m shooting with a Canon T3i and 18 to 135 mm lens.

The main point here was to see what sweeping the camera through a longer exposure time (about a 1/10 of a second) would do to creating a different, more expressive type of image. For example, could I show how our dog dries herself in one image? Can I blend the colors of cattails and birch trees? How do sand dunes look from a speeding motorboat?
