A question for you Peter: What shutter speed did you use? I'd love to try out a photo like this, but although I LOVE taking pictures, I usually use autofocus. Therefore, I don't really know how to achieve cool affects like this. I'd also love to try to take those crazy, blurred waterfall pictures. I assume that's about the same. Isn't it the slower the shutter speed, the more blurred the image? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks! :) #1024744

Yes Amanda, you are exactly right. The slower shutter speeds will give you the blur effect. The difference with the waterfall is that you keep the camera still (perhaps using a tripod), so that the surrounding shore and rocks are in focus. My shot here is called a pan action, in which the camera is moved to be in sync with the movement of the subject and everything around the subject is then in blur - while the subject (hopefully) is in focus. Depending on the lighting situation, I have found that pan action shutter speeds will be around 1/2-1/15, but they can be longer. You can also use a tripod with pan action and use the head swivel to move the camera throughout the exposure. It takes some practice. Have fun with it. #1025268
