Motion blur is frequently used to show a sense of speed. Photos taken with a camera do not represent a single moment of time. Due to technological constraints these shots stand for some scene over a brief period of time.

Rather than an ultra-fast shutter speed, time-lapse and motion blur photography use a very slow shutter speed or multiple images to convey time and/or movement. In motion blur, any object moving with respect to the camera will look blurred or smeared along the direction of relative motion.

Here is a good article on How to Capture Motion Blur in Photography



  1. Sorry, don’t think the dog (about sixth last) was shot like that. Looks like a photoshop to me. I would clone layer, filter, reduce opacity and then mask out dog area to get an almost identical effect.

  2. I dunno Terence.. looks like a crappy photograph job to me.. lol – Most of the pictures look fantastic, but the flying bird, dog and a couple others just look like blurry photos

  3. Wow! These photos are just fantastic. I could sit and look at them all afternoon. Thanks for sharing, and for providing the ‘how to’ link.

  4. Exceptional pictures! i have never seen such wonderful photographs, in my life. These photos inspired me to start doing motion blur photography.I really admire this collection!
