Motion Blur for a Kid Who Can't Be Still
He's the son of a friend. While we were playing outside his mom's office, I took some photos of him. I didn't want to use a flash so I pumped the ISO and shot at Aperture Priority. I used my very first DSLR, the Canon Rebel XS with a Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 lens.
The shot was set at f/5.6, 1/50s and ISO800. It is nice to show the dynamism and the seemingly bottomless energy of kids by adding motion blur to their portraits. And, as I found out here, 1/50s is already slow enough for kids for motion blur to show.
