Have you ever been to an event and wondered how to capture the excitement, mood and energy that you are witnessing?
On a recently trip to Africa, we stopped at a wave-pool and watched these surfers having the time of their lives, surfing a standing-wave (wave that is not moving forwards) and pushing the limits.
This was the perfect opportunity to show this excitement and movement, in a still image.
How did I do this?
Shutter speed is the magic word here.
By using fast and then slow shutter speeds (explained in detail in my Essential Photography Skills Training Series) I managed to capture an unusual image that shows movement…. take a look at this video.
What do you think? Did you learn something new?

Have a great day. Brent
