P52-9-28 Technique - Fast Shutter
Posted By: Tsukiouji, 09-27-2020, 01:44 PM

This week's theme would be opposite to slow shutter — fast.

from Wikipedia:
Very short shutter speeds can be used to freeze fast-moving subjects, for example at sporting events.
Excessively fast shutter speeds can cause a moving subject to appear unnaturally frozen. For instance, a running person may be caught with both feet in the air with all indication of movement lost in the frozen moment.


And I think strobe/flash could be used here to freeze the subject as well.

Tips and references:
Freezing motion with a fast shutter speed


Photos for the Week #28 competition are to be taken between Sep 28, 2020 and Oct 4, 2020.

Rules:
1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-9 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed.
Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot, Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones, please.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

An opportunity presented itself to me today to get something for this challenge. I went to a place I had never been before, mostly to shoot plants, once there I saw there were many butterflies and birds also, so I put the 55-300 PLM on (of course most of the butterflies and birds disappeared then) the camera. I came around a corner of the trail and saw two gray squirrels chasing each other, which is always fun to watch how fast they go. I did get this shot, 1/500 was almost enough to get them without blurring. That was about the best I could have got in the woods at that distance, ISO was on auto and went to 2500, which produced a little noise in this instance.

I get the job of picking the winner between two fine photographs. Noel that is a beautiful shot, as you said, not terribly fast, but fast enough. But I'm going to give the nod to Don because I've never seen anyone go to the lengths to drop office supplies to get a shot, just incredible determination, and the shutter was faster than Noel's, which is what we were looking for. Don, you get to pick the next winner, good luck! Just how many attempts did that take anyway?

Thanks Tom. I thought Noel would get the nod hands down. BTW, great capture Noel.

I first tried dropping nuts, bolts and screws. Not much color there. Switching to push pins and paper clips got the color but not the density of items I wanted in the frame. After about a dozen or so drops I settled for the one I posted. Next time I would try dropping from l-r or r-l instead of in one spot to fill the frame a bit better.
