Natural Evolution - Add Some Movement To Your Images

People mill about the atrium of the beautiful London Museum of Natural History.

The use of movement in a photograph can interest and dynamics. Whether it's the movement of the wind, a moving vehicle, or moving people, try slowing down you shutter to capture the feeling of time passing. In this case I was in aperture priority mode so I raised the aperture to f22 and lowered the ISO to 100 to achieve a shutter speed of 2.5 sec without the use of a neutral density filter.

Camera Sony Alpha NEX-7
Exposure 2.5
Aperture f/22.0
Focal Length 18 mm
ISO Speed 100
Exposure Bias 0 EV

The wind was always blowing in Aruba so the movement is an attempt to reflect this...

A little movement is always interesting and adds a dynamic feel as you try to portray a subject...

Rainy Days and Mondays

We didn't have much rain on our visit to London but I was grateful for the bit we did have so I could get a few abstract "rain on the window" shots. ;-)

The Westminster Bridge is always a favorite and frequent stop of mine while visiting London so it is always a bit of a challenge to take something new. This is a textured version of Big Ben.
