What You Need to Succeed!


​So you want to capture light streaks or motion blur.

It's the same thing; the only difference is one is typically done during the day and the other at night. ​  

​So what goes into making a great photo with motion blur/light streaks?

You'll need your background to look sharp and in focus while the object moving is the only thing blurry.  ​

However, you can't just walk up to a situation and expect to be able snap the photo and be done!

There are a few things you'll need to have and know...

1.  You will need a tripod, or sturdy object to rest the camera on.  Hand-holding will NOT work.

2. With Android you will need to use the Pro Mode.

3.  With iPhones you will need the app Camera+ (or a similar app...this is not an affiliate link.)​

4.  You will need to adjust ISO and shutter speed to allow to gather light and allow the motion to be captured.

5.  The longer the shutter speed is open​ the more blur you'll get, but you'll also get more light so as you increase the shutter length you also decrease the ISO.

6.  Have FUN!!!

I don't expect that you'll get it correct the first time, so practice, practice, practice!!
