what I put on my collage is the 1964 impala. The reason why I put it is because it’s one of my favorite car. what else I like about this car is the the hydraulics. I put the bully because it is one of my favorite dog. I choose this dog because its really playful he likes to run. I like this dog a lot because of there blue eyes but they call this dog a blue nose.

I put Netflix because I could watch movies or my favorite tv shows. one of my favorite tv shows is family guy. I could watch family guy with my sis or my 2 brothers. My favorite character is Stewie because he got a football head. i like straight outta Compton because they make music.

I choose football because I like to play it. and I choose the Cuban link chain because I want to get one some day. I choose the color blue because it is my favorite color and I like how it looks. And the last picture that I choose was the Jordan 4 off white and the metallic purple because the off white is the type of shoes I want to get and the metallic purple is the type of shoes that are one of my favorite also.

Action and motion

First to capture motion is you must use a slow shutter speed. you see, the reason for motion blur is simply that your camera’s shutter remains open for an amount period. you get motion blur when your shutter speed is long, whereas you freeze the action when your shutter speed is short.

As you know, the shutter speed is good at achieving a beautiful blurred. Even small changes will have a big impact upon your shot so you should use a camera mode that gives you full control over your camera’s shutter. You have two options. First, you can switch your camera to full Manual mode. It’ll work well, and it’s a good idea for more experienced photographers. but in Manual mode, you’ll also need to select your aperture and ISO. The longer the speed, the more light that will get into your camera, and the brighter your photos will be. If you’re shooting in Shutter Priority, your camera will narrow the aperture for you. As soon as it detects a slow shutter speed, it’ll close the aperture and deliver a well-exposed shot. You can adjust your ISO in Manual mode or Shutter Priority mode, so simply dial in a low ISO such as 100 and watch as your exposure decreases.
