People Photography Week – Thursday

This week will be devoted to people photography – by popular request on twitter. Wildlife photography was the second choice. Over at DPE, my friend Juan Pons is offering a week of wildlife photography tips. So you get the best of both worlds!

I took all the photographs for this week’s blog posts on a workshop in Venice, Italy organized by VSP Workshops.

Thursday’s Tip: Shoot with your shutter speed in mind. Blur or freeze the subject with the correct shutter speed. The choice is yours.

For the previous photographs in this week's posts, I used a fast shutter speed or a flash to freeze the action. For this photograph, I used a shutter speed of 1/15th of a second to blur the action.

Canon 1Ds Mark III
