Newton's Fourth Law of Motion states: panning your camera to follow an object in motion will result in the creation of an energetic, dynamic image.

We might be paraphrasing.

Nonetheless, motion blur is a fun way to accentuate moving subjects in your photo. It gives energy and life to what would normally be a frozen moment. It’s almost like proof your subject was moving, and capturing that movement or momentum can change the mood of a photo to make it much, much more dynamic. Check out today's episode and then get outside to capture motion on your own.
