The Bethadilly 52 Week 8 – Movement

oh, movement.  it is something that is new to us, these days.  where i used to be able to set my little daughter in place and she would stay put, at 10 months she is now on the move, forcing me to be more mindful of my shutter speed to freeze her movement within the frame.  one of my habits as a photographer is using very slow shutter speeds.  it’s not uncommon for me to shoot at 1/80ss or slower, while still maintaining focus.  don’t ask me how i do this…as i promise i drink lots of coffee, yet must have a stable hand.  but with a moving little one, it’s time to focus on that shutter speed.  with the prompt for week 8 of the bethadilly 52 being movement, i was encouraged to raise that shutter speed to capture a crawling photo.

to join in on the bethadilly 52, where we take one photo a week using the hashtag #thebethadilly52 on instagram, check out the prompt list.
