Smashing magazine posted an amazing compilation of 45 motion blur photos from various photographers back in 2008. It’s not a new post, but that doesn’t diminish the beauty of the collection and the photos themselves. It’s a very inspirational article who will definitely nudge many photographers out there to give slow shutter speed photography a try.

Depending on the scene and what you want to depict, motion blur photos typically require you to have a sturdy tripod (please, don’t trust your hands) unless you want to go freestyle kind of motion blur photography. However, a caveat is that if you’re shooting under broad daylight, the amount of light is usually too much such that it overexposes your photo – a workaround will be using a neutral density filter that will reduce the overall brightness of the scene, allowing you to work with longer shutter speeds.

    Those were absolutely amazing photos. I especially loved the waterfall ones and the doggie with everything blurred behind him — too cute! I have yet to master this technique but now I want to go out and try. :D

Your name is required. Why?

  • So that I can address you personally (which I'm more than happy to do).
  • Everyone loves their name to be called, right? Nobody wants to be referred to as 'a certain someone' or Mr X (X-Men members aside).
  • If your post too much spam, your name will be imprinted on a personalised voodoo doll, completely free of charge. I'm just joking!

Your email is needed. Why?

  • Your email is, and will, never be given out to any third party under any conditions (except for people sneaking up behind me when I'm on WP admin).
  • So that I can contact you personally in case of certain issues that I wish to address personally.
  • If you post too much spam, I'll email the same spam you've posted 10 times back to you, completely free of charge.

You can always leave a personal URL behind

  • It can be anything - most people put their blog URL, their facebook page, their Twitter URL, their MySpace or etc.
  • I give love back by saying NO to no-follow. All of your webbie links are dofollows instead.

Twitter. Twitter. Twitter.

  • What is Twitter?: Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users' updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 bytes in length.
  • What is my Twitter ID?: To get a Twitter ID, you simply have to sign up for an account at Twitter.com. Your ID will be in the format of your profile's URL - http://twitter.com/[userid].

Hello Easter Egg hunter! You've discovered the magic of the Konami Code!

Yea. You probably know what the Konami code is before getting to this page. So now what? Here is a randomised YouTube video on my favourites list... which includes Rickroll, if you're luck enough to get it.

You are currently watching The Real Group - Words. Loving it? You can even watch the video in its full screen glory :)
