Theme Thursday: Fast Motion Photography (D283)

Thursday spins back around this week, bringing us to another edition of Theme Thursday. The themes aren’t always exciting and often lead to frustration and challenge trying to come up with something original and creative. But, that’s the point!

Theme Thursday is meant to challenge you to photograph something outside your comfort zone, something different, something new. You might never photograph the same thing again, but you can say you did it and at the end of the year, you’ve stretched your creative muscles in ways you might have known possible.

This week’s theme is MOTION! Of course I waited until 10 pm when we were watching So You Think You Can Dance to figure out what I was going to shoot today. Fortunately, I had the help of my husband and daughter for ideas and for modeling. My daughter threw on some fun striped socks, my husband set up the lights and background, and we took Theme Thursday for a spin!
