21 Outstanding Motion Blur Photos

by David Peterson 4 comments

Motion blur is a simple technique that requires a lot of luck. Fortunately you don't need any special equipment - just a tripod and a camera that can be set to shutter priority. You can shoot for motion blur at any time of the day, though unless you have a set of neutral density filters the darker hours will probably yield the best results. Whatever the situation, the key to getting a really cool motion blur photo is to experiment and shoot a lot of frames.
