I seem to have left my laptop charger at the church this week 😦 So, I will upload your bubble photos next week. So sorry for the delay!
Tracking (aka Panning): Panning is the act of tracking the lateral movement of an object in order to successfully capture the object – without blurring, but sacrificing the clarity of the background (this occurs because the moving object is followed by the camera, while the stationary background is blurred by the camera Panning).
– Focus on a moving object and follow it with the camera while you’re standing still/in the same spot. This allows your subject to be in focus while the background is blurred — this creates a sense of movement in your photo.

How to take good pictures in “busy” or “crowded” spaces:
– Use the rule of thirds like crazy!
– Find a subject within the scene and use the subject to arrange your composition.
– Use diagonal/leading lines.
– Sometimes lighting can make a big difference — golden hour light works wonders for “ehh” pictures.
Some examples from Milton Campbell’s VSCO Grid:
Notice his use of the rule of thirds, and that there is always a defined “subject”… something or someone for us to focus on.
Use reflections in your pictures – mirrors, puddles, pools, fountains, windows, etc.
Try to get some good tracking shots.
Email me 3-6 of your best photos by Teusday evening 🙂
See y’all Wednesday!
