A-Z Archive: B Challenge

From my Archive I choose Blur

Motion Blur adds an element of excitement: –

999 Emergency - Police Van at Speed

Zoom Blur is an artistic effect that gives an abstract quality to a scene: –



Zoom Blur can be simulated using photoshop but was achieved in the shot above using the traditional method of zooming out whilst using a slow shutter speed.
