L1M2AP3_1277_Fountain. Showing Motion Blur.  Nice clear background with people walking away, tree and park bench all having straight uprights. The fountain itself has motion blur. It’s not VERY blurry, as I wanted the movement of the people frozen, too. For that to work, I assume that the water has to be moving faster than the people. Tripod. Shutter priority. Shutter Speed: 1/90; Aperture: f19; ISO: 200; Focal Length 100 mm; Lens: EF-S55-250mm; Camera: Canon 550D.

L1M2AP2_0651_Motorbike. Slow Shutter Speed. The photos I took using a very slow shutter speed (up to 1/15) all had far too much light in them. It seems that you have to find a balance between shutter speed, aperture size, available light, distance and type of lens. And also the speed of the subject — so I have tried to choose subjects of different speeds. Shutter Speed: 1/30; Aperture: f27; ISO: 200; Focal Length 55 mm; Lens: EF-S18-55mm; Camera: Canon 550D.
