Motion / Movement is a wide and varied photographic subject and as a result there are many ways a photographer can create a sense of motion or movement in their shots. Slow shutter speeds can be used to exaggerate the flow of water while fast shutter speeds will freeze the force of a wave as it crashes against a sea wall. Taking the idea one step further, Nikon's 1 J3 camera lets users simultaneously record a slow motion movie and a still image which the camera combines to create a 'living image'. More information on this featured called 'Motion Snapshots' can be found in the Nikon 1 J3 Digitutor on the Nikon UK website. You can also win a Nikon 1 J3 kit in ePHOTOzine's 'Black & White' competition. Don't forget about panning to add motion to motorsport shots and there's ways motion can be added or created during post production too.

ePHOTOzine has written many tutorials that cover motion in some shape or form and as a result, we've decided to group the most popular ones together so, hopefully, you'll be fuelled with enough inspiration and ideas to make you want to head out to capture motion.

Once you've read our tips, head over to the ePHOTOzine Photo Month forum where you can share your motion shots with the rest of the ePHOTOzine community. 4 Nikon COOLPIX P520 cameras are up for grabs this month to the winners of our 4 weekly Photo Month competitions.
