Motion Shots

Today I went to Prospect Park. There are a lot of bikers there. I like biking. But I wasn’t on my bike. Instead, I was taking pictures of the bikers. I was practicing a photography technique. I put my camera on a very low shutter speed (1/13th of a second) and then as they went by, I moved my camera with them and then took the picture with a nice, fluid follow through. The result should be that the biker is frozen within the frame (which would never happen at 1/13th of a second shutter speed), while the background is very blurry, indicating speed and motion. Check out the results below:
