TheySee highlights the Zoom Blur method to try your hand at Motion Blur photography for InstaSoiree Volume 3.
Motion Blur can look tricky sometimes, but it’s fun to understand how different and simple techniques can give amazing effects to our pictures. One such effect is called Zoom Blur effect.
What is the Zoom Blur effect?
Zoom blur is basically manually zooming the lens as quickly as possible while taking a motion photo.
How to click an image with Zoom Blur?
1.Control Zoom : While taking such a picture one has to slow their shutter speed. While releasing the button to click , one has to simultaneously zoom their lens. Zooming in or Zooming out is a personal choice! This zooming automatically distorts the image thus giving the blur effect. Try zooming at different speeds for different kinds of pictures.
2.Light Matters : Although the secret to creating these types of photographs is to have a slow shutter speed, this will only work well in dim lighting and on overcast days. When the sun is out you might well find this technique near impossible to achieve, this happens due to over exposure!
3. Keep the camera Steady : Even though this is the most obvious point, one tends to not pay heat to it! It genuinely pays off to keep your camera & hand steady while clicking pictures,especially while zooming! The easier way to go about this is if you have some support like a tripod,stool or even a wall.
