In this project you are going to focus on the sense of movement. This can be done with actual movement in your photographs (ie sport photography, dance, cars, night photography, and long exposure) or the idea of movement. Think about those moments just before something is going to happen, like diving off a diving board, sliding down a slide, or getting on a bicycle. Your images should suggest movement even if there is no "actual" movement in the photograph. Also think about being more metaphorical and photographing things whose sole purpose is to move; like cars, bikes, roller skates, skateboards, etc. How could you create a sense of movement by photographing these types of objects?
Artists to consider: Ernst Haas, Edward Muybridge, Otto Steinert, Henri Cartier-Bresson
You must photograph (50 exposures) of images with a sense of movement. Definitely think about both the actual idea of movement and the suggestion of movement. Be creative and think outside of the box. These images should be printed and constructed well. Think about your frame and composition while you are photographing as well as your final intent.
