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. Watch Toby’s Time of Day & Quality of Light video for the best tips to get your golden hour photos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXEaFkgIqYo 

To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_goldenhr.

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!

Roy’s Winner:

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.

 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
 "Such a blunder sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bring the thunder" * The Jefferson Memorial might be my favorite. Jefferson's quotes inside, the circular structure surrounded by the columns, the fact that it is perched on a more organic, curving body of water. There is much to love here! Inside I chose to go wide with the 12mm Laowa to capture that awesome dome and offer a different perspective. * Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and @venuslaowa #12mm f/2.8 lens
