52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 14

How did everyone do with last week's challenge?

Hopefully you were able to get some nice shots for the prompt ELDER.

This week is going to be a bit more challenging I think.

This week, our challenge is: ACTION

Capture the action of something going on around you this week. You can use panning or a long exposure to show movement, or you can use a quick shutter speed or a slow sync flash to freeze the motion. Panning is moving the camera generally in a straight line while the shutter is open, following the subject and blurring the background. A long exposure is usually done with a tripod, or at least with the camera set on something stable, and will give effects like soft white waterfalls and waves and show the movement of clouds and even stars. A fast shutter speed or slow sync flash is great for freezing the action.

Here are some great articles from that helped me:

As you can see, I did try a little panning for this image, but panning doesn't help keep the subject in focus when the subject is also bouncing up and down! LOL! I still love this shot even though there's not a bit in focus. This shot epitomizes our holiday get-togethers: noisy, boisterous, busy, and playful, especially when the grandkids (ages 2 & 4) are around!

So let's see yours; share it with everyone at our flickr group! And don't forget to sign up for the reminders via email!
