Motion blur is one of my favourite effects when shooting digital photographs. When it all comes together it can look really spectacular. Done well it can look like a very difficult shot to achive but in reality it’s not that hard a process. In my next post I get into some detail about how to control motion blur with shutter speed but before that here are two of my favourite motion blur shots and some details about how I took them.

The second time I was able to use my shinny new DSLR was on a business trip to Hong Kong. Great I thought, spectacular cityscapes with which to try out my new found camera skills! It didn’t live up to expectations.
First of all it was a business trip which meant I wasn’t going to get any time to myself. Obviously most of the time I was in the office but even when your not at work your working on a trip like this. Secondly my new found camera skills where not all they were cracked up to be! I managed to sneak a small ammount of time while the rest of the party were having pre dinner drinks to get down to the waterfront at the harbour. I had ten mins in one of the most spectacular locations in the entire world and this is all I could come up with!

I described in a previous post the process of choosing my new camera, A DSLR. The most important part of this process being to hold it in your hand. This obviously meant going to a shop that sold it but that didn’t mean I needed to buy it from there. So I hit the internet again. This time trying to find the best price.
I decided to rule out eBay as I didn’t want to run the risk of getting ripped off or ending up with a used camera so I narrowed it down to reputable retailers, both online and actual bona fide shops. I searched purely on price and the cheapest deal I could find was on Amazon. I’d bought loads of stuff on there before and never had any issues; they were a big name player and had a good reputation so I decided to go ahead with them.
