July 2011 - Movement and Action -Page 1 of 2

Our project for July was to take pictures involving movement or action in some way. This might involve using the settings on our cameras meant for taking Children or Sports, but these settings can also be useful for capturing the sparkle of water.

Most of us found the project challenging. Some of us experimented with more manual settings, setting a fast speed perhaps and changing the ISO. The results were very interesting and good pictures were produced, only a sample of which appear here.
