Natural Evolution - Add Some Movement To Your Images

Natural Evolution by James Neeley

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...
