This was a fun project. I’ve taken motion freeze shots before, but never motion blur. I found the motion blur photos to be harder than I thought they would be! I think I spent at least 30 minutes trying to get a shot that wasn’t completely blurry.
In this picture, my brother Adam was moving the monkey in a circle and I followed the monkey with the camera. I didn’t do a lot of edits on this shot, I just used the unsharp mask filter and used the levels adjustment tool.
In this picture, I was able to snap a picture of Josh throwing the ball to Adam. Again, I didn’t do a lot of editing on this picture: just unsharp mask and the levels adjustment tool.
In both this shot and the last one, my brother jumped off of the wall of the parking garage. I probably made him jump at least 20 times and by the end of it he said he didn’t think he’d ever be able to jump again. Edits: unsharp mask, levels, and selective color.
