Week 8 - On the Go

This week was mostly about motion and shooting motion. (I think. The point of the lessons seems to be getting more and more obtuse as the weeks go on...) It covered different approaches to capturing motion, and then the assignments were to practice some of those approaches. (And pet photography. Random, right?)
I don't love any of these photos, really (except the last one, with the puddle), but I was more concerned with getting the concept down than worrying about perfect exposure/shutter speed/post-processing.
I think I got the jist of it, and will certainly be keeping this in mind in the future.
With that said, the photos!

Use the "panning" technique to capture a subject in motion. Panning is having the camera moving at the same speed as the subject, to increase the background blur and emphasize the motion.

Embrace the blur; allow some part of your photo (taken indoors) to go out of focus to show the action/motion in the image

Catch your pet in action; Geoffrey doesn't do much "action" but this is a nice photo of him! LOL

Use a fast shutter speed to freeze the action
