Freeze Motion Photography

Bryce Evans

freezing motion in photography is all about timing and camera settings.

Frozen motion photography indoors can pose a slight problem due to the inability to achieve a fast shutter speed in low light conditions. However, this can be corrected using a faster ISO film speed. This will results in additional grain on the film and the photographs will not print large without noticeable grain. However, many sports photographers and journalists use fast speed film and are likely using the prints for magazines or newspapers where the print is smaller.

Between fast shutter speeds and fast ISO film speed when needed, frozen motion photography is a simple technique. For another way to capture motion in film photography, see the blur motion photography page. With blur motion, instead of using fast shutters to capture motion, you use a slow shutter speed to allow the subject to be in movement. For more advanced photographers, see the panning motion technique that allows the moving subject to be in focus with the background blurred in motion.

here are some examples:

I personally have tried this and it’s not hard. The hardest part is keeping a focus on moving subjects when photographing sports.
