This month's assignment was "FAST." And here are a few that stood out -

The First is from RenDeevus and it's titled FAST. He did some crazy things that could confuse people, like moving the camera to cause motion blur. Also notice that the background is upside down and the color is off.

The second comes from Mary Ellen and it's called 20131106_fast_0853fway799. It's of a communter bus causing a blur that's stuttery because the bus sign cycles on and off.

Lastly, we have Brenden Burkett's MotoBike. He panned the camera with the bike to make the subject freeze in the middle of the motion. Leo says it's not easy to do. Chris says going automatic when doing this will help, and you will get better over time. But 99% of what you get with this technique will be unusable.

Next month's assignment is ARRIVAL. Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "arrival" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "arrival" as well. If Chris likes it, it could end up on our next photo segment.
