Need for Speed - photography competition

Need for Speed – Photography Competition June 2018

The time goes so fast… another day, another week, another month … yes, it’s time for a new photo competition from us.

Our theme for June is “Need for Speed“!

Timing is crucial in photography. As I am sure you remember, in camera we control time by selecting appropriate speeds. “Shutter speed” is the length of time your camera shutter is open, exposing light onto the camera sensor.

On the technical side, shutter speed will affect your exposure. “Slow” shutter speed will allow more light in – making your image brighter, and “fast” shutter speed will let in less light – thus your image will be darker.

There is also a creative side! And that’s what we want to see in your pictures! By controlling the shutter speeds, we can either freeze action (by selecting fast speeds) or blur motion (slow speeds).

You are the artist – you choose your subject – possibilities are endless!

If you are looking for some extra inspiration, take a look at our dedicated Pinterest board!
