What I learned with this particular assignment of taking pictures of moving people/vehicles is that it is tough to accomplish. Not only do you have to have the correct ISO, but the correct shutter speed, aperture size and excellent hand/eye coordination. I am not exactly happy with the photos I took for t his assignment, but I did learn a lot of what do and what not to do.
It was exciting and a little frustrating finding just the right spot to take pictures of motor vehicles driving by that didn’t have a stop light every block and a half. Honestly, I did feel a bit odd taking pictures of moving vehicles and at first felt kinda like a stalker. But then I realized that I would only take photos in one spot for a few minutes and then move on, so that would ally the suspicions of any who were wondering why I was taking their picture.
Anyway, I will be practicing on my own and learn how to take good (if not excellent) action shots. The next two assignments are even more challenging. Bring it on!
