Having a technical challenge with Freeze Motion got you going for higher shutter speeds to really lock that motion in place. It’s a handy skill to have so you can switch when needed to catch subjects moving a lot faster than your average or just freezing a moment. Like always we had a great assortment from wildlife to portraits and planes.
You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s Instagram challenge #PRTV_goldenhr. Get out early or later in the day for that perfect soft and warm golden hour light.

I love this shot, it’s pin sharp tip to tip. You captured the motion really nicely and I love this shot. Compared to Roy the green is very green but it’s still a natural looking shot.
Toby’s Honorable Mentions:
It’s a bit messy, grainy, and oversaturated for my taste but holey moley you caught the action. It’s a bit crazy, where’s the rider? You froze the spray in place and you can see the individual drops.
Skater dude! Here's my little guy cruising! . . . This week's photo challenge was #freezemotion and rather than do the obvious for me it was about trying something new. A cool way to freeze yet convey motion is with an action sequence whereby you compose and expose your frame as usual but you take a rapid sequence of photos as the subject traverses your frame without moving your camera. After that, it's a post processing nightmare whereby you choose which parts of the sequence to use and layer your shots. You then cut, erase and reveal parts of the layers. I added the opacity gradient effect to really drive home the illusion of movement here. I can't say I really enjoyed this whole process, but I like how it worked out. #prtv_freezemotion #prtv #scooter #skatepark #actionsequence #skateboard #skatelife
I picked angry_runner for the action sequence of post processing nightmare for this great shot. It’s pretty cool!
Doortje has a tabletop drop shot for a splash which is a really nice way to practice your freeze motion photography. Using a faster aperture is a nice touch as it adds to the scene and really throws some of the drops out of focus. Just remember when using a reflective cup to clone out some of the reflections for a cleaner photo.
Roy’s Honorable Mentions:
Jberendtphotography has a nice frozen shot of an apple “falling”, it’s a nice posed composition and makes for a great fall scenic shot.
One of the great things freeze motion can work on is birds and wildlife in general. Using that faster shutter speed insures you get that crisp shot to freeze the bird in the moment. It could do with slightly less saturation though as it’s a bit strong at the moment.
