03.13 Motion

Images are not always about sharpness; about whether something is in focus or not. Blurredness is also a tool used in creative expression, and in this case, to communication a feeling of motion and speed. There are three elemental kinds of motion blur:
  1. complex streaking - created when the subject is in motion and the camera is not
  2. linear streaking - from the panning of the camera or moving camera mount
  3. jarring blur - shaking the camera results in a subject image with ghosted double-edges
The blurs may be combined. For example: panning to capture a twirling dancer moving across the stage.
